Other interesting statistics:
http://www.svnsearch.org/svnsearch/repos/ASF/search?from=20090101&to=20091231&path=%2Fxmlgraphics%2Fbatik
http://www.svnsearch.org/svnsearch/repos/ASF/search?from=20090101&to=20091231&path=%2Fxmlgraphics%2Ffop

Generally, the (updated) report sounds fine.

One thing that concerns me a bit is the growing patch queue in Batik and
FOP.

Batik Patch Queue:
https://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/buglist.cgi?bug_status=NEW&bug_status=ASSIGNED&bug_status=REOPENED&bug_status=NEEDINFO&product=Batik&query_format=advanced&short_desc=[PATCH]&short_desc_type=allwordssubstr&order=bug_id
FOP Patch Queue:
https://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/buglist.cgi?bug_status=NEW&bug_status=ASSIGNED&bug_status=REOPENED&bug_status=NEEDINFO&product=Fop&query_format=advanced&short_desc=[PATCH]&short_desc_type=allwordssubstr&order=bug_id

Good patches that don't get processed will drive potential committers
away at some point. And patches can go out of date. But I still have no
recipe to get our project more active. I've been trying to recruit FOP
users to participate in the development ever since I went independent,
with only little success. Some people are often happier to pay for a
little extension or fix (which made a good part of my income in the last
few years) than to dive in themselves and take more control. And most
simply expect others to work for them for free. And then there's the
problem that spare fun time to do things not work/client-related is
usually very limited. Sigh.
