Apache PDFBox is an open source Java library for working with
PDF documents. PDFBox entered incubation on February 7th, 2008.
</p>
<p>
The website has been set up. The license review is underway and
has already progressed quite far. The export control notification
has been set up. These tasks and most other tasks were all
performed by PDFBox mentors (mostly by Jukka Zitting). Sadly,
there has been almost no participation by the initial
committers, yet, except for handling the license grants and CLAs.
</p>
<p>
On the user side, some questions don't seem to get answered.
Not many patches have reached us, either.
</p>
<p>
Issues before graduation:
</p>
<ul>
<li>Increase community size and activity</li>
<li>Finish license review</li>
<li>First Apache release</li>
</ul>

Apache PDFBox is an open source Java library for working with
PDF documents. PDFBox entered incubation on February 7th, 2008.
</p>
<p>
We have finally migrated all sources to Apache svn and set up
the project website at http://incubator.apache.org/pdfbox/.
We also set up a CI build using Hudson. Traffic is picking up
on the user and developer mailing lists, new issues are being
reported through Jira, and there is initial discussion about
an incubating 0.8.0 release.
</p>
<p>
Software Grants have been received from Ben Litchfield and
Daniel Wilson who are the primary authors of the PDFBox, FontBox
and JempBox software. There have been a lot of small
contributions (under the BSD license) by a number of other people
to the project and it was asked (see
http://markmail.org/message/zy6oweihmenqt6o4) on the legal-discuss
list whether the primary authors have "sufficient rights" to
grant a license for all of the code, or if we have to contact
all the other contributors for separate grants. Having received
no response to the question on legal-discuss we assumed that
software grants from the primary authors was sufficient.
</p>
<p>
We're discussing about what to do with the FontBox and JempBox
codebases that are included as subprojects of PDFBox. We might
decide to merge them with similar efforts in other Apache
projects, most notably XML Graphics.

<p>
The contents of the issue trackers at SourceForge have been
migrated to Jira. We've also created a pdfbox-users mailing
list and plan to point people from the SourceForge support
forums to that list. The project sources have not yet been
migrated to Apache svn.
</p>
<p>
Issues before graduation:
</p>
<ul>
<li>Bring the sources to Apache</li>
<li>Increase community size and activity</li>
<li>Release once all licensing and export issues are resolved</li>

PDFBox is an open source Java PDF library for working with
PDF documents. PDFBox entered incubation on February 7th, 2008.
</p>
<p>
The basic project infrastructure (lists, svn, jira, etc.) is
already in place, and we are currently working on migrating
the source code and existing issues from SourceForge. We have
also requested a user mailing list to replace the current
help forums on SourceForge.
</p>
<p>
PDFBox uses the Bouncy Castle crypto libraries for handling
encrypted PDF files. We will take care of export control issues
as we proceed with importing the PDFBox sources to Apache.

The PDFBox project has just entered incubation, and we're
currently setting up the project infrastructure. A question
about the licensing of the JAI dependency was voiced on the
mailing list.
