Apache BVal was founded 2012-02-14 (8 years ago) There are currently 15 committers and 14 PMC members in this project. The Committer-to-PMC ratio is roughly 8:7.
Community changes, past quarter:
Apache BVal 2.0.3 was released on 2019-08-19. A maintenance release along the 1.1.x branch of activity is planned for the near future.
With last quarter's addition of a new volunteer to the PMC and committer roster, our capacity to keep up with maintenance tasks has increased. Our mailing list traffic is low; as noted in the past our usual model is frenzied activity for a spec-compliant release, then the maintenance cycle, much like the proverbial "periods of boredom punctuated by periods of terror" commonly attributed to war. Our JIRA activity also reflects this: two issues opened and closed with patches provided, accepted, and applied during the quarter. Another issue opened to request a release of those changes on a dormant line of development (the aforementioned 1.1.3 release).
