The comment on the change is:
Comments on the longer term developments, as suggested by Jeremias

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  '''General Comments'''
  
- There are no project-level issues. Business as usual.
+ The XML Graphics subprojects are not fashionable but rather good old software, which a large
user base just expects to be there without giving it much thought. This makes them less attractive
to new contributors. Batik and FOP have been around since 1999 (note the 10-year anniversary
later this year). So far in 2009, 3 committers have been active on the Batik codebase, 7 on
the FOP codebase. In the case of Batik these 3 have been the same since 2005. No additions,
but so far luckily no drop-offs. We have to get better at turning regular contributors into
committers.
+ 
+ We're a little concerned (but not alarmed, yet) that a slightly growing number of patches
don't get processed in reasonable time.
+ 
+ Other than these reflections on the longer-term developments, there are no project-level
issues. Business as usual.
