Overall, the project is going as planned:
There are no issues at this time.
We are preparing the v0.8.0 release at end of Dec, 2017.
Most questions happen at rocket chat, and get response within a day. New features are proposed and planed using jira, also with fixing reported bugs.
v0.8.0 release will come soon, with supports of setting up fabric network using ansible, on top of cloud env, vm or servers. The vsphere cluster support will be done, too. Moreover, the documentation keeps updated with the latest design and implementation.
Besides, we are planning to have some meetup recently.
There are 3 maintainers from IBM (2) and Oracle (1), covering both US and Asia areas.
We nominate new maintainers based on continuous contributions in terms of code, QA/education, doc and review activities.
Cello project has a good diversity in code contribution, QA and adoptions.
In past 3 months, there are contributors from 7 different companies, and also with individual ones.
