this looks already pretty good - thanks Deron for pulling it together.
Furthermore, you could include the following paper, published July 29:

Ahmed Elgohary, Matthias Boehm, Peter J. Haas, Frederick R. Reiss, Berthold
Reinwald: Compressed Linear Algebra for Large-Scale Machine Learning, PVLDB
9(12), 2016.

Subject:	Draft for August monthly report

Here is a draft I created for the August monthly report. Feedback welcome.



SystemML provides declarative large-scale machine learning (ML) that aims
flexible specification of ML algorithms and automatic generation of hybrid
runtime plans ranging from single node, in-memory computations, to
distributed computations running on Apache Hadoop MapReduce and Apache

SystemML has been incubating since 2015-11-02.

Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:

  - Grow SystemML community: increase mailing list activity,
    increase adoption of SystemML for scalable machine learning, encourage
    data scientists to adopt DML and PyDML algorithm scripts, respond to
    user feedback to ensure SystemML meets the requirements of real-world
    situations, write papers, and present talks about SystemML.
  - Continue to produce releases.
  - Increase the diversity of our project's contributors and committers.

Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
aware of?


How has the community developed since the last report?

  Our mailing list from May through July had 237 messages including a wide
  range of topics. We have gained 6 new contributors since May 1st. On
  the project has been starred 365 times and forked 129 times. Fred Reiss
  spoke at Spark Summit on June 7 about building custom machine learning
  algorithms with SystemML. Mike Dusenberry presented about SystemML on May
  at Datapalooza Denver.

How has the project developed since the last report?

  We produced our second Apache release, version 0.10.0-incubating. The
  project has had 205 commits since May 1. 187 issues have been reported on
  our JIRA site and 127 issues have been resolved. 70 pull requests have
  created since May 1, and 63 of these have been closed.

Date of last release:

  2016-06-15 (version 0.10.0-incubating)

When were the last committers or PMC members elected?
