Subject Re: Discussion - Moving Axis2/C and Axis1 to Attic
Date Sat, 04 Jul 2015 17:15:58 GMT
Sound good. I am +1 on having under one PMC boundary. So, let's try to 
move them to archive. Will start a vote.

Regarding Sandesha2, I think we have to keep that with Axis branch, 
because Axis2 needs those to fully function.
