Subject [Attributes] Leaving project
Date Fri, 07 Jul 2006 09:35:01 GMT
Hi All,

I'm abandoning the Commons Attributes project. I simply do not have
the time to keep it going any more.

I have now "intended" to get a 2.2 release out for *nine months* but
haven't found the time to actually do it in all that time. That, if
anything, is a clue that it is time to just admit defeat.

What finally made me realize this was when I looked at the Jakarta
Commons release guidelines. When I see a 39 step checklist for
releases I don't see "release early, release often". I see myself
losing my will to live. There is something wrong when the release
process is twice as long as the time it takes to get all bugfixes and
new features in for the release.

Therefore: The current snapshots (which you can download from the
project home page as 2.2 RC) will be the last I produce. For all
intents and purposes, consider them the "final" 2.2 release.
