The November board meeting is coming up (next week I believe) and we're due to report. The page for the report is setup on the Wiki here: http://wiki.apache.org/xerces/November2008. As usual I'll cover Xerces-J and XML Commons. Could other committers please fill in the status for Xerces-C and Xerces-P.

Thanks.
