Just because bureaucrats say jump doesn't mean anything is going to happen.
The facts as I know it
1) Our fork is maintained (continuous bug fixes - which we won't submit 
to Apache now)
2) Stefan is putting in some work (one man army)
3) Wojciech Meyer had put in some work
4) NetBSD has a small amount of patches they could probably push 
upstream (If Jörg has the time)
5) Martin is/was great for feedback in all areas of STL/C++/occasional 
code review
I'm really not sure if to you this would make the project dead or in a 
koma.  The problem as I have said before is there needs to be some 
compelling reason to use STDCXX vs libc++.  Instead of just trying to 
sweep it under the rug - why not find it a new home, put a one line call 
for help on a blog/homepage or etc.  Apache leaders have a huge 
readership, but this "koma" issue isn't on the general radar.

STDCXX isn't some stupid ass java framework or widget - It's a 
*critical* part of a C++ stack and the cost of leaving it out of the 
attic is negligible - What's the benefit of bringing up these attic
