Subject Re: What's the difference between dormant and retired?
Date Mon, 27 May 2013 19:17:53 GMT
I think the terms mean different things, from the incubator perspective.

Dormant - we're not active enough right now for a full community, but
believe later on we can build it back up.
Retired - we've given up all hope of becoming a TLP, instead we think it's
best to archive the code/move it to github/move it to bitbucket and allow
others who want to work on it to just grab it and go.

Just my 2 cents..
