[REPORT] Apache Tiles December 2016

Report from the Apache Tiles Project

## Description:
 Apache Tiles is a free open-sourced templating framework for Java
 applications. Based upon the Composite pattern it is built to simplify
 the development of user interfaces.

## Activity:
 Apache Tiles remains a stable but low traffic project.

This quarter there was very little public activity. A couple of small
fixes. No releases were cut.

The majority of activity still happens on non-apache sites like the
StackExchange forums. StackExchange sees a few questions and answers
each day or two. Efforts to subscribe these posts back to the user
mailing list should be re-investigated.

## Health report:
 There are currently two responsive PMC, other PMC help out with votes
 when needed.  Everyone is aware of the how little momentum the project
 has, but it does not feel abandoned by members, nor not in use by the

## Issues
Further effort is still required to increase health to the project.
Previous board report received feedback on what such effort might be.
This can be from including the StackExchange traffic, following up on
some of the development ideas, to publicity and engagement with other
communities that have more momentum in the UI space.

## Memorial
On September 30th our previous chair Greg Reddin passed away. A number
of members stepped forward to contribute their praise and condolences.
What was written up was shared with Greg's wife.
