That's quite a long time in incubation. Let's see what we can do to
help you graduate.

Good to hear that! However, I don't see much involvement (commits,
issues, dev@ posts, etc.) from Thomas after he received committership
in January. Was there some problem or did he just get busy with other

More generally, looking over the last quarter in Etch I see ongoing
technical work mostly by Michael Fitzner and Martin Veith but only
occasional input from others and not much focus on community-building.
Do you have plans on how to increase community activity and diversity,
or are you happy with the status quo?

If you need good ideas on community building, see Dan Haywood's recent
post [1] about their work with the Isis podling. There are also people
both at the Incubator and at ComDev with lots of community building
experience that might be able to help on this if you like.
