+
+Apache Velocity Project Board report for November 2006
+
+* Velocity Top Level move
+
+ The Velocity project is excited about its move out from the Jakarta
+ umbrella and onto top-level status.
+
+ The board decided to establish the Apache Velocity project on Oct 25th
+ and appointed Henning Schmiedehausen (henning@apache.org) as Vice
+ President, Velocity and chair of the Velocity PMC.
+
+ Ever since then, we have started to migrate our web site, mailing lists
+ and repositories out of the Jakarta umbrella. With help from the
+ infrastructure team, we currently have moved all mailing lists onto
+ velocity.apache.org, created the private@ and general@ lists and started
+ migrating the web site (we already have velocity.apache.org but it is
+ currently redirecting to the jakarta site). We hope to finish the
+ migration until the end of November.
+
+
+* General information
+
+ Some talk with the Click project (click.sf.net), which is a framework
+ centered around Velocity, has taken place to bring Click through the
+ incubator into the Velocity project. There has been enthusiasm on the
+ Click side and from us, but we have not taken any steps yet, because we
+ wanted to let the dust from the top level move settle first.
+
+* Velocity Engine project
+
+ The 'velocity' project has been renamed the 'Velocity Engine project' a
+ while ago. What is commonly known as "Velocity" is actually the
+ templating engine.
+
+ The Velocity Engine team is pushing heavily towards the 1.5 release. We
+ have released one beta and will be releasing our second (and hopefully
+ last) beta this week (we already voted on it). We expect an RC until the
+ end of November and plan for a final release very early Q1 2007 (both
+ Will and Henning attended Sally's PR talk @ ApacheCon US and we tried to
+ understand the value of good release timing). We also plan sort of a
+ "mini PR campaign" similar to the press releases issued at AC US. We
+ will get in contact with the PRC once the RC is out. 
+
+ The code base itself has seen a steady progression; we were able to
+ triage and sort all of the issue reports in JIRA and prioritize them
+ nicely. The number of open issues is steadily going down so we expect
+ the 1.5 release to be the best Velocity release ever.
+
+ There has been work on a docbook based Documentation (User Guide,
+ Developers Guide), which in turn has spawned a docbook framework which
+ might usable outside Velocity as a general purpose documentation
+ framework.
+
+
+* Velocity Tools project
+
+ Velocity Tools is working through a short backlog of patch contributions
+ and bugs hoping to get a 1.3 version released before Velocity Engine 1.5
+ goes final.  It's also the plan to test VelocityStruts 1.3 against
+ Struts 1.3 for compatibility.  Velocity Tools 1.3 is likely to be the
+ last major release in the 1.x line, as the development team already
+ started planning for version 2.
+
+
+* Velocity DVSL
+
+ There were no changes on the DVSL code base in the last few months. DVSL
+ currently has no active developers, but we do apply the odd patch. All
+ issue reports against DVSL were triaged and checked but there are no
+ immediate plans to do a DVSL release unless one of the contributors
+ steps up or strong desire for a release is shown on the user list.

+
+Apache Velocity Project Board report for December 2006
+
+* General information
+
+ The Velocity project is busy moving out of the Jakarta umbrella and into
+ top-level status. Since the last report we have successfully moved the
+ SVN repository with the help of infrastructure and also set up a commits
+ mailing list.
+
+ For the TLP itself we are in process of setting up a web site which then
+ links all the project web sites together. This should be done till the
+ end of December.
+
+ The Velocity project currently has no board-level issues at this time.
+
+* New Committers / PMC members
+
+ Claude Brisson (claude@renegat.net) was voted in as a committer to the
+ Velocity Tools project (and in turn to the Velocity project as a whole)
+ on Dec, 1st. His CLA has been sent in and recorded.
+
+ No new PMC members were voted in since the last board report.
+
+
+* Velocity Engine project
+
+ The Velocity engine project voted and released 1.5-beta2 on November
+ 24th. 
+
+ According to the discussion on the infrastructure mailing list, we moved
+ this beta release together with all other voted beta releases (currently
+ only 1.5 beta1) into the mirrored distribution tree at
+ www.apache.org/dist/velocity/ 
+
+ The engine project fully expects to keep its early Q1 '07 release date.
+
+* Velocity Tools project
+
+ Velocity Tools is gearing up towards the 1.3 release. No beta or final
+ releases were made since the last board report.
+
+* Velocity DVSL
+
+There were no changes in the DVSL code base. No DVSL development
+happened in the last month.
