Hi all,

Release 2.0.0 is in planning, and part of it will be running on vanilla
Apache. So I think those two items will be covered soon.

Community is growing albeit slowly. Carol will have some data there.

Would be sweet if there were more yous, contributors/participants rather
than subscribers to lists. Will wait on Carol's report.

release. Would be healthy if another one at least was done while inside
incubator just to show 1.3.0 was not a 'fluke' (smile). We found some good
stuff getting 1.3.0 out the door. Another round wouldn't hurt I'd say (IMO).

And this also, this is just my opinion, but if this is to be an Apache TLP,
I'd think it behooves that it is possible to run on Apache releases w/o need
of a vendor intermediary. Being able to do this will also help get T*
distributed wider afield.
