Led by Luciano, the PhotArk community is discussion a new direction.
I'm looking forward to a summary in their February status report.

It seems like Kato now has a more or less definite statement of
non-interest from Oracle, which leaves them discussing how to continue
from here. Their next status report is due in March; looking forward
to a summary then.

As discussed, Stonehenge had already been voted to retire. I completed
the process.

There's some desire for further development, but apparently little
energy or interest in community-building. The option of taking the
codebase to an external hosting space came up. I suggested graduating
into an XMLBeans subproject as an alternative, assuming the XMLBeans
PMC is willing to help with the oversight.

I started the hise-dev@ vote to retire the project based on feedback
from the community.
