Jakarta status report, April 2010. There are no issues requiring board attention at this time.


We have voted to move two subprojects to the Apache Attic. Jakarta Slide and Jakarta Taglibs showed very little activity over the past year or so. After a discussion to gauge committer interest, we deemed it appropriate to move those to the Apache Attic. We have asked the Apache Attic PMC to take over. As a result, we will no longer include a status on these subprojects in future board reports. Henri Yandell has volunteered to help move Jakarta Taglibs to the Apache Attic. We are looking for a volunteer to help with the move for Jakarta Slide.

We are discussing three other Jakarta subprojects: ECS, ORO and Regexp. These have number of active users but no new major development planned. We expect to present the outcome of this discussion in our next report.

As mentioned in the last report, we voted to consolidate all the Jakarta subproject development mailing lists into one list. The progress is being tracked in JIRA and infra intends to look at it soon.
