Subject Re: Low level community

I think that a project that has a low level of activity is fine.  As 
long as it can do its board reports to show that there is some level of 
monitoring, and that the PMC believes it can get the necessary 3 votes 
(with adequate notice) then so be it.  Some software (eventually!) 
works.  That software is still be valuable to the users.

With a large number of TLPs, some are going to be in this state.  Not 
attic-worthy, still useful, minimal active development.
