Subject Re: Drop OVM in 4.0?

Also, if it hasn't worked in several past non-Apache releases, are we
really dropping support now?

I'm -1 for considering it a blocker for 4.0.0-incubating. It can
always be added back / fixed / whatever if someone cares about doing
that.

I say we move forward without changing the current state (I.e.: it doesn't work)
