Cello community is very active.
No urgent issues, but it would be helpful to provide some machines to create fabric test net, to help people to experience fabric/cello platform's latest feature quickly.
There are 3 maintainers from IBM (2) and Oracle (1), covering both North America and Asia Pacific.
We nominate new maintainers based on continuous contributions in terms of code, QA/education, doc and review activities.
Current number of project contributors is 25 with 62 patch sets merged since last December. With project gets more attention, this number will certainly increase.
Cello developers have been participating in local meetups and global hackfest events to promote and demo the project, and help attract more people to join and use hyperledger products.
