Subject retiring the Hama project
Date Wed, 08 Jan 2020 20:07:17 GMT
It is the sense of the board that the Hama project should probably be moved
to the attic.

This based on a history of inactivity in the project and failure to even
report to the board.

This change will mean that the project will go read-only as far as the
Apache Foundation is concerned, but it does not prevent anyone from forking
the project into a new life outside of Apache. I would add that this step
is a relief to participants in a project that has become inactive since
they often feel a strong loyalty to the project even if it isn't still
their focus.

I initiated a conversation on the topic of retirement with the PMC and got
one +1 and one +0 comment back. That is a common occurrence when a large
number of the participants in a project have moved on to other interests.

This email is intended to let the entire Hama community what is coming. As
I mentioned, this change doesn't prevent you from continuing to use Hama,
it just means that further development will not occur at Apache.
