- Greenhouse team started moving their builds to Concourse. Runtime
and BOSH are also in progress.

- Toolsmiths team taking over Krafa, which is a project (to-be-OSSed)
to manage a pool of CI environments. Currently being used internally
at Pivotal, but totally applicable to OSS as well.

- A pair is working for the next month on License Finder, which is an
OSS tool to examine a project's declared dependencies (via a package
manager) and discover licenses and changes in licensing. This should
be useful for the Foundation as well.

- New pair rolled on from IBM, who ramped up quickly and are contributing;
team velocity is up.

terminal emulator. Community members have offered to be a part of
that user testing
