Subject Re: Is it time for Bloodhound to move to the Apache Attic?
Date Sun, 13 Sep 2020 18:40:23 GMT
As much as I like the old bloodhound project, I’m not personally in a
situation where I can contribute time or effort to keep it alive.

Also, I haven’t seen anything yet with the discussion on porting it to
Django or flask that took off a few years ago when bloodhound was at that
time considered for the attic. Circumstances being what it is, I’m not the
most up to date with the current platform. If Gary is the only person
working on it, is it worth keeping alive right now? There are much better
bigger and smaller solutions out there, and git has become the golden
standard over the years too.

Imho, maybe it is time for bloodhound to be archived, and those who want to
use it can do so, just my 5 cents worth.

Salut bloodhound and thank you all.
