> Other Activity:
> A major potential contribution was posted to our Jira, which reimplements

> in an attempt to support better concurrancy on processors with large
> numbers (e.g. 64) of cores.  This work is a proof-of-concept, and is

> Based on an ApacheCon talk which suggested talking with your community

> We have agreed to participate in the documentary video about the ASF;

> Community:
> The community continues to be moderately active.  A new person has started
> committing improvements to one of the core UIMA tools.
