Subject Re: [VOTE] Suspending Projects -- XAP
Date Wed, 18 Feb 2009 15:27:48 GMT
Hello PMC,

As a committer on the XAP Project, I would also vote +1 (non binding of
course) for moving the project from incubation to the attic. We have seen
little community develop around the project and have been making little/no
progress on the code lately.

Thanks for everyones help throughout the process,
Bob (Buffone)
