Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Retire Gearpump
Date Wed, 12 Sep 2018 12:22:22 GMT

Thanks for bringing this difficult topic.

I was struggling with it myself.

Here are my thoughts:

Our main objectives were to build the community and gain more adoption.

Although there was some considerable interest, I think we were not able to
build a stable and sizable community around our project.

We have identified some "technical" goals to achieve as the next steps.
Without a broader community, I think we won't be able to keep a decent
development activity and release pace.

It doesn't look that the situation (community) would change any time soon,
so - with a heavy heart - I must agree that it would be only fair to the
Apache community to retire Gearpump.

I am hoping we'll continue working on Gearpump in some other "formula" in
the future, as it has some strengths and is cool to use and develop ;-)
