[REPORT] Apache Tiles September 2016

mck-2
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 an stable but low traffic project. This quarter
 two
releases were cut with three PMC involved. Otherwise there is two
responsible
and responsive PMC ready to help users and discuss development ideas.

 Both user and dev mailing lists saw increased traffic over the
previous quarter, although most of this is attributed to the releases.
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.

## 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 public.
Further effort is still required to increase health to the project.

## Issues
 The board agreed last report the importance of making a release to test
whether the project has three involved PMC. That has been done and
proven.

## Releases:
 Two releases were made this quarter. Apache Tiles AutoTag-1.2 and
Apache Tiles-3.0.7
