Thanks for checking things over, Justin!

I got Ignite.  Four of the other releases wound up in the June report:

  TinkerPop 3.0.0.M9

Atlas 0.5-incubating was omitted because it has not been uploaded to
the Incubator's official dist directory.

That is something that the Atlas PPMC should attend to.

I would say that the most interesting releases for the Board are those
which violate ASF policy in some way yet were *approved*. The IPMC
should keep the Board informed about such judgment calls when it makes

For release candidates which were not approved, they would have to be
exceptional in some way, e.g. absurd number of release candidates, or
highly contentious discussion. In the absence of such unusual
conditions, approving incubating releases is something that the Board
has delegated to the Incubator, and there's no record-keeping or other
reason to enumerate them.

It's also, frankly, a PITA to assemble the release list, as it is not
obvious how to automate the extraction of that information from the
svn logs.  I wouldn't want to add more to the burden of the Report

Freemarker got mentioned as a new podling in this report.  They should
start reporting next month.

Mysos was listed in the June report.
