Subject [VOTE] Close down the Lucene.NET project, effective January 31, 2011
Date Wed, 29 Dec 2010 16:01:56 GMT
Background: Please see the December Lucene Board report, amongst others, for description and
multiple mailing list threads (both here and on Lucene.NET) on the background of this vote.
  This move has been a long time in the making with many discussions on it. 

Whereas the Lucene.NET project has stagnated due to lack of committer activity and,
Whereas the Lucene PMC is no longer interested in maintaining the community due to lack of
interest in working on the .NET platform by PMC Members and
Whereas conditions set forth by the PMC in October for continuance as Lucene sub-project have
not been met by the project
Therefore, be it resolved that the Lucene PMC shut down the Lucene.NET community, effective
January 31, 2011.

[] +1 - Shut it down
[] 0 - Don't care
[] -1 - Do not shut it down

A positive vote result means we will shut down SVN access, put a notice on the website and
send one to the mailing lists as well as close down any other resources. 

PMC votes are binding and a majority of +1's are all that is needed (i.e. no vetoes).   Due
to the Holidays here in the US, this vote will be open for 5 days.

Note, a positive vote does not mean that this project cannot go back to the Incubator or that
it must die completely, it just means that the Lucene PMC is discharging it's responsibility
for the project by shutting down the resources it is responsible for and removing commit access.
