## Board question from last report: druggeri: 
It's good to see new contributors.
Any prospects for new PMC members... it's been a while.

We do not currently have any new PMC member prospects,
but we keep our eye out for some.

  After the release of uimaj, we started the work to migrate
  that project from SVN to GIT.
  This has been a slow and difficult process, due to a couple of things. 
  1) the documentation for this includes apparently out-of-date information.
     See for example,
     (read the comments)
     which still has no definitive answer.
  2) simple modifications for your project's GIT repository require
     filing of INFRA Jira issues, and due to current load,
     these appear in their KANBAN queue that's 100's of items long.
     See https://issues.apache.org/jira/projects/INFRA, and
     pick KANBAN on the left-hand navigation.
     The result is that it can take more than a week to get these acted on.
Community Health: The community continues to be moderately active;
some new contributors doing patches.

Issues: No Board level issues at this time.
