Board report January - March 2010

Summary
=======

The Apache Harmony community remains healthy, and has recently
released new milestone builds.  The lack of a JCK continues to be an
issue for Harmony.


Development and Releases
========================

The Harmony community published Apache Harmony 5.0 Milestone 12 on
December 5th.  We later discovered that one source file had a
questionable header comment [1], so we replaced it with
Harmony 5.0 Milestone 12a on January 27th.

The next regular milestone, Apache Harmony 5.0 M13, was released on
March 10th, comprising a number of bug fixes and test case
enhancements.  On the same date we also released the first milestone
from our 6.0 code stream.  Apache Harmony 6.0M1 is the first stable
build available from the Java SE 6.0 API code stream, and while there
are still known missing APIs, this first milestone is already very
capable.

Harmony build and test is running smoothly on the Hudson systems.


Community
=========

There were no changes to the Harmony PMC or committers during the last
reporting period, and there are now 50 committers of which ~9 were
active this period.

The Harmony community have raised a number of proposed projects for
consideration by the Google Summer of Code participants.
