+2011-January Status Report for the Apache OpenJPA Project
 There are no items requiring board attention at this time.
-OpenJPA made two maintenance releases: 1.0.4 and 2.0.1. 
-OpenJPA has decided to stop support of JRE 1.5 starting with 2.1.0,
-so the last release that supports 1.5 would be the 2.0.x series.
+The OpenJPA web presence was evaluated with regard to the trademark
+and branding requirements. Most of the requirements are already met,
+with the exception of direct "sponsor", "thanks", and "security" links.
+There are links to the Apache sponsor, thanks, and security pages but
+these are linked by the OpenJPA sponsor, thanks, and security pages.
+The trickiest issue is that OpenJPA is introduced as "a Java persistence
+project" which is a noun, not an adjective. This will need to be changed to
+"The Apache OpenJPA project is a Java persistence project".
+We have identified a volunteer to migrate the existing Confluence-based
+web tool to the Apache CMS, and the changes with regard to trademark and
+branding will be done concurrent with the migration.
-We're implementing a plan to give more users write access to the
-wiki to encourage contributions.  The hope is that contributors to
-the wiki will become committers over time.
+New committers were voted into the project: Jody Grassel and Heath Thomann.
-Mailing lists continue to be very active, with an average of close to 250
-messages per month on the dev alias and approximately 150 messages per
+Mailing lists continue to be very active, with close to 230 messages 
+per month on the dev alias and approximately 110 messages per
 month on the users alias.
-OpenJPA continues to experience a modest increase in email subscriptions and
-activity. There are about 150 subscribers to dev and over 240 to users.
+OpenJPA email subscriptions are stable at approximately 150 subscribers to dev
+and 240 to users.
-There have been no changes to the committer or PMC rosters;
-a vote is underway for a new committer.
 We continue to monitor contributors for possible committers and committers
 for PMC members.
-The project released OpenJPA 1.0.4 which implements JSR 220, 
-and OpenJPA 2.0.1, which implements JSR 317.
+A branch 2.1.x has been created in preparation for a maintenance release
+2.1 early in 2011.
