+2009-July Shiro Incubator status report
+
+Shiro is a powerful and flexible open-source application security framework that
+cleanly handles authentication, authorization, enterprise session management and
+cryptography.
+
+Shiro has been incubating since June 2008.
+
+Due to potential naming conflicts with the previously chosen name of 'Ki', the
+ASF community at large helped us change our name to 'Shiro'.  This was a large
+collaborative effort that really showed the power of the Apache Way and resulted
+in a name with which a large majority of people were content.
+
+Project infrastructure has been switched over to support this name change and
+ all seems to be running well.  We have yet to properly configure Hudson for
+ continuous integration builds, but that should be done shortly.  The new CWIKI
+ space is available here: http://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/SHIRO
+
+The name change also affords us to start publishing incubator Maven snapshot builds
+ which will help foster adoption to all Maven end-users (which there are many).
+
+We're very happy to report that the the name change and community support resulting
+from it have allowed the development team to return focus to developing the framework
+and resolving issues rather than spending time on name-related administrative issues.
+
+The project team is not considering graduation at this point, as the code is
+not ready for an Apache release. Once IP clearance is complete, and Mavne snapshots are
+working, we'll attempt our first incubator release.
+
+The status is being maintained at
