Subject Re: Time to Retire SAMOA from Incubation?
Date Wed, 05 Jun 2019 06:33:50 GMT
Hi,

Can we wait three months to decide if we retire it from the incubator?
If there is no new release, we should retire it from the incubator.
I'll try to ask internally for some help for doing a new release.

Cheers,

Albert
