Subject Re: Stop accepting PRs for 1.3?
Date Fri, 30 Apr 2010 13:28:30 GMT
How about putting out a call for volunteer community maintainers and let
them take over the project. Make it clear on the home page and bug
submission pages & e-mails that ASF is leaving Bugzilla and other fora as
a courtesy to the 1.3 user community. Any concerns should be sent to the
volunteer maintainers.

Hopefully there will be several volunteers. If nobody is willing to step
up and do the work, I think that answers the question. If there are no
takers, change the workflow such that new PRs are "noted" and change the
assignment email address to "|/dev/null".

My concern is that people will submit 1.3 bug reports, and get
frustrated when there's no "official" response.  Is there a way we can
keep 1.3 submissions open but make the level of support for 1.3 clear to
bug submitters?
