Subject [VOTE] Revised dormancy policy
Date Mon, 16 May 2011 17:52:26 GMT
I would like to take the proposal made in [1], modified per
discussion on that thread to a VOTE, so we can start implementing
the policy.

The provisions are as follows:

0) To move a component to dormant requires a VOTE.   A single -1
suffices to postpone the action; but a -1 in a dormancy vote is
really a +1 to help sustain or advance the component. Dormancy VOTEs
will remain open for two weeks.

1) When a component is voted "dormant":
    a) the main web site and site navigation links show the
component as dormant
    b) the component site and component JIRA page display a "dormant
disclaimer" (TBD)
    c) JIRA remains open (not merged into Commons-Dormant, but JIRA
project page displays disclaimer)
    d) svn remains open (but no commits without revival vote)

2) To revive a component requires another VOTE resulting in 3 +1s
from ASF committers interested in bringing the zombie back to life. 
Revival VOTEs are majority rule.

votes, please.  This VOTE will remain open for at least 72 hours.

Comments, as well as votes, are welcome from all community members. 
I will revise the policy and restart the VOTE if necessary.
