Problems with committers, members, projects etc?
We have a new contributor, Sriram Rao, who has submitted an ICLA and made his first contribution. The Woden M7a release on April 23rd incremented M7 with the new, shorter WSDL 2.0 namespace URL. The W3C WSDL2 spec has now moved to Proposed Recommendation with Recommendation expected early July. The Woden M8 release, planned for July, will complete WSDL2 spec compliance by fully supporting WSDL2 Assertions (validation). After M8 we plan to review and finalize the API, then deliver a Woden 1.0 release. In May the project team discussed requirements for exiting incubation. We have some housekeeping items to complete, but expect to approach the WS and Incubator PMCs in June.
