Jakarta status report for August - October 2009. There are no issues requiring board attention at this time.

PMC membership updates

Over the last three months, the Jakarta PMC has gone from being the largest PMC in the foundation records to the second largest, from having 120 members on the PMC to currently 87. A number of PMC members who no longer have a lot of interest or time to devote towards Jakarta anymore have stepped down. At the same time, we also checked with 28 PMC members who were no longer subscribed to the private list, 2 of whom decided to stay on and subscribe.

This is the last board report that will list Taglibs updates.

As reported in July, the Tomcat project will host three of the taglibs (RDC, Standard, Extended) going forward and the rest of the taglibs have been retired. Henri Yandell did most of the work to make this happen.

The SVN move for the three taglibs is complete. The websites have been migrated to the tomcat.apache.org site. Bugzilla and Gump have been redirected. The taglibs-user list has been maintained and moved over to the tomcat.apache.org domain name, while the main Tomcat development list will now be used for contributor discussions. The taglibs-dev Jakarta list has been closed.

Taglibs updates will henceforth be part of the Tomcat board reports.
