>             Project: jclouds
>          Issue Type: Task
>          Components: jclouds-core
>            Reporter: Adrian Cole
>            Assignee: Adrian Cole
>             Fix For: 1.9.0
> For over a month, we've discussed the fate of vcloud [1]. For example, we've already
removed all vcloud providers as they no longer work with version 1.0 [2]. Also users who contact
us either run custom forks [3], or also find features they need missing [4].
> Eventhough the replacement code was supposed to be vcloud-director, it has never left
labs, and has too much technical debt to continue attempting to support [5].
> A couple stakeholders have offered they may be able to help [6], or encourage vmware
to add a new api to cover modern products [7].
> Good wishes aside, the facts remain that we have 2 aging apis, that are unsupportable
in current form. Keeping vcloud and vcloud-director codebases limits the project's ability
to move forward, so we must drop them.
> Users who wish to continue on either codebase will need to maintain their own fork.
> When it comes time to start vcloud products again, we'll want to start very small, with
at least 2 champions, and some means to keep tests passing. If we don't, we'll surely repeat
history again.
