I've updated the report. Please take a look, if all is ok, I'll post it
this evening or tomorrow. I've also added some in-line comments below.

Celix is an OSGi like implementation in C with a distinct focus on
interoperability between Java and C.

In the last months there has been a lot of activity, issues have been filed
and resolved.
Also we are working on removing the usage of APR.
Issues with the website have been fixed, a getting started guide has been
added [1].
Wrt publicity, a talk about Celix was given at the FOSDEM 2015.

I thinks once APR is removed we should make a new (2.0?) release. One item
that needs to be discussed is wether we want to have an build option to
still be able to maintain the old API (mostly the bundle_context providing
a memory pool).

being written, if so, why not do it directly in the Celix repo? So that
other people can view/test it? If not, can this be done directly in the
Celix repo?
I'm not sure if the research project setup makes this possible.. So if
there are objections to this, I'm looking forward to some patches/code

Back to the subject of this thread, the report is imho complete, if there
is still something missing, let me know!
If more info is needed on the other subjects, please start a new mail
