Time to tally the VOTE!

The following votes have been cast:

+1 Romain Manni-Bucau, David Jencks, Alan Cabrera, Guillaume Nodet,
Jean-Baptiste Onofré (nb), Mark Struberg
No -1 nor 0

That means the VOTE has passed and the Geronimo server parts will get

Txs to all who voted!

Alan, do you like to draft the announcement?

How do we do it practically?
Move it into an end_of_life folder inside our own SVN area?


And then we also gonna need to slowly update our site.

What about a new active projects index page and a banner about this kind of
news? Can surely be included in the work John is doing, no?

txs and LieGrue,
