It's good to start to see progress, however it seems to have been going on
for a long time.  Also good to see access rights issues are being resolved.

Is the inclusion of only a single item pending graduation an indication
that the podling is nearly ready to graduate?

The use of stats here is OK, but to provide better context should include
how they compare to prior quarter.

Its great to hear about this podling bouncing back.  Considering the notes
about SwellRT, are there any potential licensing issues by integrating the
code?
