Please note that retirement doesn't make source code
go away -- it will still be available for you to use and hack on.

Retirement is ASF's way of telling outside world that even
though source is still there and available, the community
is gone. Now, as I said, the measure of the community
"being there" could be interpreted as *at the very least*
having 3 active participants since all decisions would
require 3 votes minimum.

Not sure if NPanday has that, but would love to be


P.S. Finally, should 3 active participants show up after the
retirement, reviving the project takes very little time.
Hence its not like a permanent state of things.
