Subject Re: advancement of Bluesky project
Date Fri, 17 Jun 2011 08:54:22 GMT

Since project Bluesky started, it was continiously developed - yet not
in the open, with others able to participate, seeing progress,
establishing a steady group of contributors, getting to know the
developer community etc.
Instead, you developed the code in a closed environment, with eventual
code drops here at Apache. The developer turn-over was substantial.
This is all legitimate for software development. However, it is not
what Apache and the Incubator is all about.
To be fair, you didn't get the mentor support from Apache the project
would have needed.

I'd suggest to end Incubation for Bluesky here at Apache and propose
you open source your software within the realm of your university or
something like that. Many institutions do so successfully.
