>> 
>> Edgent has been incubating since 2016-02-29.
>> 
>> Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:
>> 
>>  1. Create and expand a diverse community of contributors and committers
>>     around the Edgent project.
>>  2. Attracting at least another independent committer/ppmc member.

>> 
>> How has the community developed since the last report?
>> 
>>    * Total, we have 70 subscribers to our mailing list, an improvement

>>        emails on the mailing list from new Edgent developers.

>> How has the project developed since the last report?
>> 
>>  * With the contributions of Christoper Dutz and Dale LaBossiere, the
>>        Edgent build system is undergoing an overhaul to Maven from Gradle.
>>        Maven provides benefits over Gradle, including a more rigid build
>>        structure, and the Maven package system.
>>  * According to JIRA, 13 new issues were added to the project and 6
>>    issues have been resolved or closed between May 2017 and August 2017.
>> 
>> How would you assess the podling's maturity?
>> Edgent is making slow but consistent progress towards graduation. While we
>> don't yet meet the diversity requirements, we put emphasis on community
>> growth through outreach which will ultimately pave the way for additional
>> committers and contributors.
>> 
>> Additionally, before we graduate it is important that we find users
>> outside of IBM. As most Edgent committers are employed by IBM, external
