Portals, especially when integrated with the Jetspeed-2 Portal, it looks like the WSRP4J project
itself lost its momentum, its active committers and its community.
> The facts are: the current WSRP4J code base is now too outdated: based on also outdated
Pluto 1.x and targeting the WSRP v1.0 spec while the WSRP v2.0 spec is available already for
almost 2 years now.
> If a proper WSRP implementation is wished for, it should now implement the v2.0 spec
and should be easy to integrate with (at least) current Jetspeed-2 Portal. Trying to revive
the WSRP4J project or even just reusing the outdated code-base for that purpose no longer
makes sense. More likely we'll start writing a new WSRP (v2.0) producer from scratch within
the Jetspeed-2 project itself, and a generic WSRP consumer portlet application at Portals
> As the Mentors of the WSRP4J project haven't been active in a long time either, the Portals
PMC as Sponsor of WSRP4J has taken over their responsibilities.
> Therefore I'm asking the Portals PMC to VOTE for proposing the termination of the WSRP4J
podling to the Incubator PMC.
> This Vote is open for the next 72 hours.
> Please cast your vote:
>  [ ] +1 for termination of WSRP4J
>  [ ]  0 for Don't care
>  [ ] -1 for No, please keep it alive (do provide solid arguments why)
> With kind regards,
