As a drive-by interested party in the incubator (with a couple of
mentored podlings) I noticed something that struck me as a bit off.

I just looked through the archives to see what was happening as AWF
has been in the incubator for not too long and I couldn't find the
vote to retire the project you mentioned.

I noticed that you did not undertake a formal vote but rather relied
on a note as a reply for a board report notification [1]. While the
mentors did acknowledge a +1 for retirement, I think retirement of
your development effort should not be discussed under the rug.

A subject "Re: Incubator PMC/Board report for Jul 2012 ([ppmc])"
sounds a lot less noticeable than "[DISCUSS] Retire AWC" or "[DISCUSS]
No future for AWC development".

In any case if the project really is dead in the water I would not
expect a discussion from my proposed headlines as well, but that would
at least have given lurking community members "to speak up now".

Anyways, onwards with retirement.

Martijn
