Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
aware of?

 Updating long term roadmap [1] to embrace community needs is in
 discussion.

 There is an ongoing discussion [1] about speed of the patch landing being
 low, as project gets more popular and attracts more contributions.

 This issue, raised by one of the mentors, is acknowledged by the community
 and there is work in progress on how the speed of the patch processing and
 acceptance can be increased: by clarifying the contribution process [2],
 discussing and documenting guidelines and best practices [3]
