Shepherd/Mentor notes:

 Flavio Junqueira:

   The project has been progressing well despite the absence of a release.
   The community has put a release candidate together, but unfortunately we
   didn't that it was missing a few important additions and changes (e.g.,
   DISCLAIMER and license header). I'm happy with the community development.
   There is interest and new contributors are continuously joining.

Flavio Junqueira: Project has been progressing well. All three mentors have
been actively participating in bringing the project up to speed and helping
out with issues. Several contributors have expressed interest in the project
and there is some initial discussion around issues, improvements, and new
features. I'm personally happy with the progress.
