We have no issues that require Board assistance at this time.

Community:

  • There have been no new committers or PMC members since the last report.
  • A lot of activity (and new subscribers) both in the user and dev mailing
    lists.
  • We put considerable effort in defining the schedule for the OFBiz
    Symposium @ ApacheCon US 2008; several contributors from a wide variety of
    organizations will present 2 days of OFBiz conference and BOF sessions, and
    there will be 2 training courses on the Mon/Tue before the conference;
    there has been a refreshing amount of interest in the event and
    participation in presentations and attendance is looking really good.

Project:

  • New features and enhancements have been added by different committers and
    contributors, including a new special purpose application (MyPage).
  • We have established a focus on framework cleanups and business
    application enabling features in preparation for a release; this is
    continuing, though with slower progress due to (apparently) a busier than
    normal season for OFBiz related consulting services, though that is also a
    good sign for the long term growth and stability of the community; the goal
    is to prepare for a versioned release of the framework instead of all of
    OFBiz in order to narrow the scope and make it easier to define and monitor,
    and once done the hope is that this will help popularize the OFBiz
    framework and further grow the user and contributor communities around the
    project.
