Just noticed there's a 5.4.5 vote currently in progress, which is great news. So I figured I'd kick off the perennial thread about 5.5 progress :) The last such discussion happened on users@ in June  and a related one on dev - just a few weeks ago in August .
So are there still any blockers to 5.5 being released? Any help you need with it?
FWIW if there is still a concern about the lack of quorum , I may help with voting. I am an Apache member and a Tapestry user since version 2.x, which may be grounds for fast-tracking to PMC membership. Though I'll only be a "single-issue voter" here, helping the PMC with this particular release.
