Subject Re: archiving EasyAnt
Date Thu, 05 Jan 2017 21:08:47 GMT
Hi,

I'm a little bit puzzled. I still believe there some room to a build tool
as easyant, and i expect that in a near future fresh blood will come and
resurect the project.

Even if i understand the purpose of archiving project without too much
activity i don't get the point of shutting down home page and all related
stuff (including old blog or even the domain name).

For good or bad reason easyant build still rely on repo.easyant.org (see
https://github.com/apache/ant-easyant-core/blob/master/ivysettings.xml  and
related discussion
http://ant.1045680.n5.nabble.com/Evaluating-Bintray-as-a-distribution-platform-for-easyant-plugins-td5714096.html).
Note that with the sources on apache side we should still be able to
rebuild everything.

I always thought apache projects needs to be "buildable"  during long
(that's why we have dist.apache.org and archive.apache.org) available, but
what is the point of having them available if we even don"t have the
available ressources to use it like the website/doc and so on ?? I mean all
this contribute to the history of the project and turning off all those
components/resource will clearly definitively kill the project.

I may be nostalgic on that topic but do we really want to do that ?

If you all believe we should stop thoses resources/components down, then
fine i'll turn off everything, otherwise i will try to keep them up
 (domain included) as much as i can.

WDYT ?
