Subject [all] Move Jelly to dormant/orphaned?
Date Mon, 09 Jan 2012 11:58:12 GMT

Jelly did not see any activity for nearly two years:

Last release was in 01.2010.

We had already discussion on a process to move proper components into
another state, be it "dormant" or "inactive". I would like to
resurrect this discussion. We have had a lots of discussion in the
past: somebody wanted to progress with somehting, like graduating
graph or using Java 5 in a component and the response sometimes was we
have to less man power at Commons.

Therefore I think we need to tell the people for which components they
can expect releases and for which ones not. Otherwise outsiders may
look at a huge bunch of components and see only little activity.
Wouldn't it be better instead to show only a handful components which
are actively developed?

Looking at Jelly, it is orphaned. No releases, no releases to be
expected. I would like to move it to dormant or to a new transition
state, if people wish so, maybe called "orphaned" or "inactive" or

What are your thoughts?
