It sure has RE: SIS :)

Looking at just mailing list activity:

  went from 9 email messages in January 2012 to 32, 74 and 39 in Feb-April 2012

We also are participating pretty actively in GSoC and hoping to get 1 or 2
students who are collaborating with the Apache OODT project as well
for a joint effort.

In addition, we've seen some good cross pollination between other (at the time)
incubating projects like Jena and Any23, and TLPs like OODT. In Jena and Any23's
case, there are active discussions and work going on to implement the W3C GeoSPARQL
system using Apache SIS. After Andy Seaborne poked around on the mailing list, I volunteered
to implement it, and a subsequent thread has ensued.

In addition, I started rolling an RC for Apache SIS 0.2-incubating, but got blocked
on some packaging issues that Kevan Miller identified that I need to fix.
Shouldn't be too difficult and I hope to have an IPMC VOTE on it within the next
week or so.

Others, feel free to add in other things. But I'm pleased with where SIS is headed. 
If we can add some new committers soon (which I expect), roll 0.2-incubating, 
and then potentially get an 0.3 shortly thereafter, I think SIS will be well on its
way to graduating and its own project.

[note: I'm going to copy the above to the Incubator wiki as a stub report for 
SIS for May 2012: others feel free to improve it.]
