Report from the Apache VCL committee [Andy Kurth]

## Description:
VCL is a modular cloud computing platform which dynamically provisions and
brokers remote access to compute resources including virtual machines,
bare-metal computers, and resources in other cloud platforms. A self-service
web portal is used to request resources and for administration. VCL became a
TLP on June 20, 2012.

## Activity:
- The Apache VCL community had previously decided to release a minor
bugfix-only VCL 2.4.3 release in order to facilitate a transition from
Subversion to Git. It was decided that adding support for Windows 10
images was worthwhile. Since the upcoming version will contain new
features, it will be version 2.5. Work is nearly complete.

## Health report:
- Traffic to the dev@vcl list is down from the previous quarter because
there was a flurry of activity in March and April while we prepared VCL
2.4, 2.4.1, and 2.4.2. I expect traffic to increase over the next month as
VCL 2.5 is finalized.

## Issues:
- There are no issues requiring board attention at this time.
