Thanks Andy for pinging.

I'm just back from annual leave.  It's not a good sign that no-one else from
the Taverna PPMC stepped up, that is pretty much what is our challenge for
graduating now.  

Here's draft report. Comments here.


Taverna is a domain-independent suite of tools used to design and execute
data-driven workflows.

Taverna has been incubating since 2014-10-20.

Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:

  1. Re-engage PPMC members
  2. Graduate?

Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
aware of?

  INFRA-16698 is pending comments from Daniel Gruno / IPMC on how
  to manage incubator repositories on git-wip-us.apache.org that have 
  been retired (in our case transferred to another GitHub organizations).
  The suggestion is to do a "git rm" and leave a README on the head commit 
  pointing to the new location.

How has the community developed since the last report?

  2 Google Summer of Code students have been active over the summer with 
  strong guidance from mentors and getting pull requests merged. 

  However the rest of the community has been very quiet and not 
  commented much on the GSOC progress or pull requests.

How has the project developed since the last report?

  Good progress from GSOC students, which code bases are now
  due a new release to include their changes.

  Two legacy git repositories were retired to not go through 
  graduation (INFRA-16698).

  There is not much outstanding towards graduation, except
  re-engaging the PMC members. 

  We will have to admit we are a slow project, which is 
  OK (many Apache projects are), yet still there seems 
  to be some kind of incubator fatigue - for 
  instance no-one else picked up the job of doing this 
  report although prompted to do so by a mentor.

How would you assess the podling's maturity?
Please feel free to add your own commentary.
