I'm not a mentor of Lokahi, but I hang around there. The project
started incubation almost three years ago and has been idle for about
a year now. I recently pinged them about status (see the thread at
[1]). There's an idea (I'm not sure how substantial) of Tomcat
adopting at least parts of the codebase, but apart from that it looks
like the project would be ready for retirement.

River is another long-term incubating project that seems to have lost
its energy. However, there's still some remaining activity and as a
mentor I'm putting some effort there, hoping to achieve a similar
revival as we've seen in PDFBox. Niclas is another active mentor. So
for now we'll keep trying.

The UIMA project on the other hand seems to have been ripe for
graduation for a long while already. They seem to be (unnecessarily?)
stuck on the diversity issue. I believe they're too comfortable in the
incubator, but perhaps the mentors have a better picture.

The other projects I know, Sling and PDFBox, are on a good track and I
expect both to graduate sometime during this year.
