Subject Re: [VOTE] Retire Chukwa from incubation
Date Tue, 27 Nov 2012 14:43:49 GMT

I will remind the IPMC that seven months ago the specter of retirement was raised.  A lengthy
discussion ensued.  Consensus was garnered.  We even added committers with the hopes of infusing
new energy into the project.

Sometimes, you just can't get ultimate consensus on retirement and you have to resolve issues
with a vote.  By *all* of the PPMC members admission, they have no time to work on this project.
 Eric simply wanted to wait a while and hope for some miracle to happen.

If Eric and other PPMC members had the time to do the work, we wouldn't be where we are today.
