Subject [RESULT] [VOTE] Termination of the WSRP4J incubator project
Date Tue, 13 Apr 2010 23:40:42 GMT
The vote for proposing termination of the WSRP4J Incubator podling has passed with 19 +1 votes
(8 binding Portals PMC Members),
no 0 votes and 1 -1 (non-binding and without arguments provided) vote.

The next step is to send the proposed termination up for vote on the Apache Incubator itself.
