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

## Activity:

- Committers are trying to wrap up bug fixes and a few new features to be able
to get VCL 2.5 out in the next several weeks
- As discussed in the Health Report section, we are seeking ideas from the
community on how to get more people involved in the project [1][2].

on our user and dev lists to address this issue. Some ideas on why activity has
been down that are discussed in the thread are lack of documentation on using
and contributing to VCL, lack of vision on where VCL is headed, and lack of
exposure to new people. I encourage the board and ASF members to review this
thread. Any comments or suggestions sent to any of our lists is extremely
