What did the people wanted to know? With FOP's State, do you mean the
date of the next release?

What I like about the Blog, is that it's easy to update. But we could
do the same in a wiki page. Please have a look at my proposition [1].
I think it's very lightweight to maintain, and it gives the impression
to visitors (and to developpers) that FOP is under active
developpment.
The Cocoon wiki even lists these kind of news on their FrontPage [2].
I like the idea.

I also updated the documentation a tiny bit [3]:
 * updated FAQ with 2 new questions
 * updated dev/index
 * could we put something on relnotes.html? When you read it, it gives
you the feeling that the project is dead (which doesn't reflect the
reality).
