Subject Re: Bluesky calls for a new mentor!
Date Fri, 01 Jul 2011 14:49:01 GMT
Based on the email trail recently, I'm in favor of completing the
vote. I think that there is sufficient evidence that this project has
'failed to launch' as an Apache community, and should go put itself on
github. If enough people disagree, they can vote -1.

My vote is +1 to retire.
