Subject Re: [DICSUSS] the future direction of the Apache Geronimo project
Date Tue, 27 Dec 2016 22:17:28 GMT
Thanks Eduardo!

If there are people interested in working on updating the Geronimo server,
I'm sure the community would happily support these efforts. So, if you or
anyone else are interested, please speak up!

Also, if there are people interested in supporting the currently released
version(s) of the Geronimo, server, I think the community would be
supportive of these efforts, also.

Unfortunately, there has not been much interest from the current community
for either of these efforts. I confess that I'm not planning on providing
support for the existing codebase or working on a new version of the
Geronimo server.

Mark,
Your plan seems reasonable to me. Unless we plan on supporting the current
version of the server (fixing bugs and security exposures) and/or
developing a new updated server, I think we must move the server subproject
to the Attic.

I do not plan on participating in the community for either commons or
server development. Once the future plans for the Geronimo Server have been
finalized, I will plan on resigning from the PMC.
