Hi everyone,

Here's a draft board report for this quarter. If you have anything you'd
like to add, please reply!


## Description:

 - Avro is a cross-language data serialization system.

## Issues:

 - There are no issues requiring board attention at this time.

## Activity:

 - 1.8.2 release is close to a release candidate.
 - Added a single-message format and API for systems like Kafka.

## Health report:

 - Last report stated, "Avro is healthier than last [quarter]". This is
   because the community was talking about setting up a regular release
   schedule and there was interest in regularly getting contributor work
   into releases. This is an important step becuase contributors won't
   submit patches to a project if they are never available to use.
 - The release planned for August has been delayed by build issues, but
   is nearly through blockers and is expected this quarter.
 - Contributor engagement is still a goal we are working on. Many committers
   do not have time to review patches.
