Web Services Project Web Services Report for January 2012

24 Jan 2012 [Glen Daniels / Jim]

Releases
--------
* WSS4J 1.6.4

General
-------

* A light quarter for WS activity.  JIRAs still getting filed and
 fixed, not a lot of new development.

* Although much of our branding + restructuring work has been
 completed, there is still more to do and it's been challenging to
 get cycles from the PMC for this kind of work.  Benson Margulies
 kicked off a thread on the PMC list about this, and it seems to be
 having the desired effect of turning up the heat under the team.
 There is a concrete proposal on the table to rework and modernize
 the website.
