Subject Re: Graduated projects please tidy up: abdera aries buildr chemistry esme oodt river shiro thrift uima

I'd like to question this: why would the Incubator ever delete archives of releases? We have
active links on the TLP for e.g., OODT and for e.g., Tika that point users to our Incubator
releases that are still active Incubator links. I realize that keeps a
copy, but following your logic, why would any TLP maintain its own dist area? It could just
point to the archives? 

In my mind, it's perfectly acceptable to keep releases that are made in Incubator ville on
the Incubator dist page -- that's not just a requirement for active Incubator projects, it
should be true even when they graduate.
