I agree. It's up to the community whether the project continues or  
not. I think we have consensus that Imperius is not going to graduate  
out of the incubator on the current trajectory.

There's not a lot of history to guide us here. I think that the main  
tasks are marking the repository read-only, disabling the email lists,  
and posting the final status on the web site.
