I don't think Click will be going to the Attic, it is way too handy framework to be shafted.
Despite the fact that Java is my favourite language and did studied at the university, I wouldn't
call myself as a seasoned Java developer - I can write complex script in Java, but I have
no clue about commercial software development procedures, I am more like into databases and
GIS, but that doesn't mean that I couldn't write a few lines here and there if that is a must.

It looks like that the development process requires a strong steering from Malcolm or someone
who is expert in commercial development procedures, prioritise the TODO's, keep up the framework
with the mainstream of Java specs if necessary and tells people what needs to be done. 
The last edition came out in 2011, as far as I can recall there were some issues with stateful
pages beforehand thus those were removed, but those are not even necessary if you are dealing
with session objects instead. I am using the latest edition and it works as a charm, I have
never noticed anything buggy in it at all, so I wouldn't know what are required to be developed/improved.

I would hate to see a great framework like Click become a thing of the past. I would like
to continue the project but I am not sure how maintain and promote it. What does it take to
keep this project going?

Hi All,
The Apache Click project development has effectively stalled because the remaining committers
on the project do not have time to progress its' development.

At this point the project has two options, either grow the community and active committers
who can advance the project or it can be migrated into the Apache Attic where the code will
continue to be available:

I would like to gauge peoples interest at this point. Is anyone wanting to pick up the mantle
to continue the development of this project, or should we migrate the project into the Apache
