Status report for the Apache Whirr project - March 2013

Whirr is a library for running services like Hadoop or ZooKeeper in the cloud.

Releases:
No new releases this quarter.

Community: 
The PMC composition did not change, and we had no new committers since the last
report. There was a good discussion on the dev list about the new Apache
Provisionr project (incubating) and how it relates to Whirr, and in particular
whether to bring it to the ASF as a part of Whirr. In the end the community
decided to create a new project (Provisionr has now entered incubation). There
is interest in using the Provisionr service in Whirr for more reliable machine
provisioning.
