Subject [VOTE] Park Kato
Date Mon, 16 Jan 2012 08:50:39 GMT
Kato implements a specification. Work on this specification is
currently suspended and its future is unknown. IMHO Kato was healthy
and progressing towards eventual graduation before this external
problem stopped work.

Creating, reading and review reports for podlings in this unusual
situation is a burden for the IPMC and the board.

As Mentor, I propose that the IPMC acts to resolve this situation by
winding down Kato in a way that allows an easy restart (by a simple
vote) whilst preserving the legal work done in open sourcing this code
base. For short, 'parking' rather than 'termination'.


[ ] +1 Park Kato
[ ] +0
[ ] -0
[ ] -1 Do not park Kato

Aim to retain legal work and code base, allowing an easy restart if
these problems are resolved.
