I am just not that familiar with Apache policy.  However, river is a real,
functional, deployed in use platform.   I certainly agree that there is
deadlock at this point in terms of the people and process.  However, I am
not sure that an attic is the right place for a well grounded and fielded
technology.  While the community might not be able to move ahead along a
clear roadmap, there is still support from the community for the technology.

Maybe a move to github would help to break things loose?  Open up the
development and release process more?  Right now things are hung up in part
on Apache process. Maybe Apache is just not the right place at this time
for this technology?
