Project update

User questions across many of the Aries modules continue on the users@ list. Discussions about the refactoring of JPA and Quiesce modules on the dev@ list. A new contribution from a non-committer: esa-ant-plugin for building Enterprise Subsystem Archives (ESAs), made it into trunk.

The SPI Fly releases were successfully voted, but the voting thread wasn't closed off in the usual way with a results tally. It looks like it was closed on 2015/03/24 as stated above.

There are no issues requiring board attention at this time.
