Subject Fwd: Re: Kato status (Was: Actively retiring projects)
Date Wed, 18 Jan 2012 10:39:50 GMT
	I'm cross posting this between kato-dev and kato-spec as it is 
important to both the Kato incubator and JSR-326. It is a discussion on 
the general incubator mailing list.

There is also a discussion, initiated by Robert, about parking the Kato 
incubator "[VOTE] Park Kato". There have also been discussions on the 
reporting for Kato.

Either way, please read. A decision will have to be made soon about what 
to do about Kato. I'd rather we decide rather than having that decision 
made for us.

AFAICT Soon after entry, the standards process stalled. This stopped
active development. Most of the activity after then has been the
community trying to find a way around the standards issue, with little
success. Progress depends on Oracle coming to a decision (one way or
the other) about the future of the standard. This might happen today,
tomorrow or in ten years time.
