Change Comment:
Update report with latest releases and JSR 283 news

Edited by Jukka Zitting:
Apache Jackrabbit is a fully conforming implementation of the Content Repository for Java
Technology API (JCR, specified in JSR 170).

The Apache Jackrabbit project is in good shape. We have no board-level issues at this time.

h2. Releases

The big news this quarter is the release of Jackrabbit 1.6.0:

* Apache Jackrabbit 1.6.0 on August 11th

The following patch releases were made from earlier maintenance branches:

* Apache Jackrabbit 1.5.7 on August 3rd
* jackrabbit-core 1.4.10 on September 15th

We made two internal releases of the Jackrabbit parent POM:

* org.apache.jackrabbit:jackrabbit:3 on June 26th
* org.apache.jackrabbit:jackrabbit:4 on September 15th

We also continued releasing Jackrabbit 2.0 alphas:

* Apache Jackrabbit 2.0 alpha3 on July 3rd
* Apache Jackrabbit 2.0 alpha4 on July 14th
* Apache Jackrabbit 2.0 alpha7 on August 10th
* Apache Jackrabbit 2.0 alpha8 on August 18th
* Apache Jackrabbit 2.0 alpha9 on August 26th

h2. Legal

We have asked (see [LEGAL-50|https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-50]) the legal team
to review the terms under which we are redistributing the JCR API jar. The purpose of this
is to complete the legal records, and this issue is not a blocker to our current releases.

Recent legal discussions regarding the contents of the NOTICE files (see for example [LEGAL-62|https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-62])
suggest that we have been including some unnecessary information in our NOTICEs. We will review
our NOTICE files before the 2.0 release to comply with the consensus on legal-discuss@.

h2. Community / Development

S├ębastien Launay joined the Jackrabbit team as a committer and PMC member.

With the 1.6 release our JCR 1.0 work has entered maintenance mode and we're focusing on releasing
Jackrabbit 2.0 shortly after JCR 2.0 becomes available. We reached JCR 2.0 feature-completeness
with the 2.0 alpha9 release, and that release was also used for the JCR 2.0 RI and TCK candidates.
The JSR 283 final approval ballot has just passed, and we expect the final JCR 2.0 release
to follow soon.

The main author of the JCROM project that implements an alternative to the Jackrabbit OCM
(object content mapping) component contacted us about bringing the JCROM code to Jackrabbit
and possibly merging with our existing OCM code.

h2. Infrastructure

We are now using the Nexus server at repository.apache.org for staging and deploying our releases
to the central Maven repository.

The monthly Google Analytics reports we set up earlier this year don't seem to be reaching
the dev@ list anymore. To work around this we're now sharing the reports via svn and our web
