So, is a failed incubation project going into the attic? I don't think
so. In addition i don't think board needs to approve that, this is
incubator business.

So my list would be with what Henri said:

> *** If not, remove source.

Plus:

- Update incubator status page with message: "2006-06-24 Project
requested to be withdrawn from incubation."
- Move project in projects.xml to "retired" section
- Update the project DOAP file
- make SVN readonly
- make Jira/Bugzilla readonly
- Turn off automated builds
- Remove from incubator.apache.org main navigation, but leave it in
the retired section of projects.xml
- close mailinglists
- Announce on general@incubator.apache.org
- make wiki readonly (if possible)
- remove from reporting schedule

What is with user accounts of people who are not active in other
apache projects and started at the ASF with the retired project? Are
the accounts closed too?

Any more ideas?

I am +1 for creating a page on the incubator site with a shutdown guide, btw.

Cheers,
Christian
