Dear community members,
As projects mature, they will naturally reach a point where activity reduces to a level such that the project is no longer sustainable. At Apache, projects reach this stage when there are not at least 3 active PMC members providing oversight. Projects that reach this stage are usually placed in the Attic  or absorbed by another Apache project willing to manage its releases.
If you are interested in seeing mod_perl remain an active project, and are able to help maintain and provide oversight, please respond in this thread indicating that you are interested in performing the duties of a PMC member.
Director, The Apache Software Foundation
