The PMC discussed the problem of lack of active committers on Batik sub project. There are some users logging bugs and posting occasional patches into JIRA, but no one to process them. The PMC has agreed to allow all PMC members commit access to all XML Graphics sub projects regardless of their originating sub project. The vote has just concluded, so an adjustment to the auth template file will be made later this week to implement this. It is hoped that some of the FOP committers will periodically process Batik patches to stop the sub project from dying.
