me know what I need to correct and/or add.

StreamsApache Streams is a lightweight processing engine for Activity
Streams objects that can be export to multiple

most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:  1.
Growing the active developer community  2. Creating documentation for
new users and new contributors  3. Increasing overall code quality in
the projectAny issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board
wish/need to beaware of?N/AHow has the community developed since the
last report?  Merged 15 pull requests in the month of August from 4
different contributors. How has the project developed since the last
report?  Added new data providers (Facebook & Instagram)

  Bug fixes in the elasticsearch writer

  Discussions on going about documentation and testing standards on
