Status report for the Apache jclouds project - April 2014
A cloud agnostic library that enables developers to access a variety of supported cloud providers using one API.
jclouds has carried out one successful release (1.7.1) in the last quarter and is currently in the process of releasing 1.7.2. A lot of work has also gone into overhauling the jclouds website, the new version of which is now live.
The developer and user community is active, with an increasing number of submissions from outside the usual committer group, and sustained activity by the core team. The PMC is still looking to grow the committer base and has identified some suitable candidates.
A slightly more detailed look at the project community. It should still be brief, issues to think about include:

2014-04-02 (Jeremy Daggett)
When was the last PMC member added?
2013-04-29 (initial composition of the PMC when jclouds entered the incubator)
There is regular activity on both the user and dev lists. Responses to questions are generally fast, with multiple community members contributing.
