Apache AxKit to be retired

Gianugo Rabellino
(general@ and private@, apologies for double posting this - I mistyped
the axkit-dev address in my original message)

Dear AxKit community,

this is a message from the XML Project Management Committee, who is
responsible for the oversight of the Apache AxKit project, and it
requires your full attention.

The PMC noticed a general slowdown of activities in the project and,
more importantly, your PMC representative (Matt Sergeant) has failed
to report about the project status in the last few quarterly reports.
According to the Apache Software Foundation rules, this is a serious
problem, and the PMC is about to run a formal vote to retire the AxKit
project by having it formally enter the Attic. The main consequence of
retiring the project is that no further development activity and/or
releases will be permitted, and the project will enter a "dormant"
state. The process is, to some extent, reversible, but if you believe
there is a good reason to keep the project alive, this is a great time
to let us know. More information the attic process and what it entails
is available at http://attic.apache.org.

Please consider this as a last call. If you are willing to interrupt
the Attic process, please speak up now. In case we don't hear from you
in 72 hours, we will start a formal vote on the PMC list and we will
get the ball rolling.

Many thanks,

Re: Apache AxKit to be retired

Matt Sergeant
Sorry for lack of replies lately - as you can see the project has
languished completely and the attic seems reasonable.

I don't have any particular reason to object.

What needs to happen to the site at axkit.org? Is a notice that the
project is no longer active enough?
