Re: Board concerns over Axis project reports - README
(Note mixed private/public lists)
The ASF requires that any Apache project have at least three somewhat
active PMC members - such that they can do things like review patches,
and in particular vote to release a software update in case of security
issues. To verify that Apache projects are still operating by ASF
policies, the board requires that each PMC provides a report of activity
and project health each quarter.
It's clear there's still some contributors wanting to work on Axis, but
lately, it's equally clear from watching the lack of acceptable reports
to the board that the PMC as a whole is not working out.
I strongly urge all PMC members still listening here to work out among
yourselves a plan to 1) choose a new project chair and recommend them to
the board ASAP and 2) engage with the contributors still here to review
their work and keep the project moving forward.
If the PMC (and/or committers on the project) can't show some obviously
organized energy at project management, then perhaps it's time for the
project as a whole to consider moving to the Attic soon.
