## 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.

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

## Activity:
- Development of the remaining issues regarding VCL 2.5 was finished.
- VCL 2.5 was released on August 22nd.
- Prior to the release, the steps listed on the ASF's crypto page were
completed. [1] Apache VCL is now listed on the exports page. [2]
- Development has obviously slowed since the push to get the release out.
Some work is being done to update documentation.

## Health report:
- Health continues to be a concern. Only 3 committers/PMC members voted in
the VCL 2.5 release thread. [3]

in contributing some features which could significantly help modernize
the codebase. [4][5]

## Mailing list activity:

- Dev list traffic continued to be heavy relative to what VCL's dev list
usually sees. This is surely due to the flurry of activity related to the
- User list traffic has been pretty light. I hope to see an uptick as
people and organizations (hopefully) upgrade to VCL 2.5.
