Moving to TLP:
ESME graduated from the Incubator in December 2010. The majority
of the items on the Incubator transfer to TLP list have been completed
but not all. We are still using the wiki-based export as our main site
but are working on the CMS-based site.

We've also been discussing branding and have selected a new icon to
reflect our new TLP status.

We are also publishing blogs on the Apache blog site [1] that focus on
aspects of ESME that are of interest to other developers.

Releases:
none yet (as a TLP)

2010-10-09 1.1 (Incubator - last release)

Development:
We are pushing towards our 1.2 release and are learning how best to
use the new functionality (Grasshopper, etc) provided by the JIRA
version change. We are now using Scala Code Coverage Tool (SCCT) [2]
to improve the quality of our tests.

Moving to TLP:
Apache ESME graduated from the incubator last month. This is its first
report to the Board.  The top level project infrastructure was set up on
December 21th, and SVN was moved on December 23.  Our web-site has been
moved to the TLP position.  Our website is currently Confluence-based.
We are working with INFRA to migrate to Apache CMS. We also have a
non-Apache blog [1] that we are no longer using in order to focus on our
new Apache blog [2].

We have more work to do to complete the move to a TLP, including
removing the incubation notices and making a first release as a TLP.

Releases:
none yet (as a TLP)

2010-10-09 1.1 (Incubator - last release)

Development:
It was relatively quiet during the first part of the month, as we were
awaiting our move from the incubator to become a TLP.  Subsequently,
there has been lots of activity to complete TLP migration. We are currently
working on our 1.2 release.

A significant number of issues remain in Jira, postponed from the
last release.  There has been some progress on these, and
a few new ones have been raised.
