Subject [VOTE] retire/EOL the Geronimo Server part?
Date Wed, 30 Aug 2017 19:09:38 GMT
Picking this up and pushing it further!

After discussing this topic many times and finding no one willing to spend time to actively
evolve nor even maintain the Geronimo Server part I'd say we should finally call a VOTE:

This is a VOTE to announce the EOL the Geronimo Server parts, mostly 

We will also have to update our site, moving most of the current stuff to a 'legacy' area
and rework it to focus on the new project agenda: to serve common EE components for other
ASF projects.

We also have a directory which contains binaries (jars) which don't even have a license information.
We should absolutely get rid of them anyway from our repo!

Note that this vote is only about the Geroniom Server but NOT about the shared components.
Those components will be further maintained - or moved to a different project later.

This includes, but is not limited to, the following Geronimo parts:
* the specs
* genesis (parents for xbean and specs)
* xbean
* the components javamail, transaction, config
Those parts WILL STAY, 

So please VOTE:

[+1] Publicly announce that the Geroniom Server is EOL (End of Life) and will not further
be maintained but that the Geronimo Project will from now on focus on reusable Java Enterprise

[+0] meh, I don't care

[-1] Nope, stop I need the Geronimo Server and I will ACTIVELY help to maintain and evolve
it in the future!

Here is my +1
