Please make that proposal on the Tashi developer's list.  Start a "[DISCUSS]
Retire the Tashi podling" thread, and then depending on where the discussion
leads, follow up with a VOTE thread.  Note that it's possible that new
contributors will step forward -- it's happened in the past.

For a case like Tashi's, the Incubator PMC will only take independent action
if the podling's community is immobile and its Mentors either concur or are
unresponsive.  We would rather have the community decide its own destiny.

I am pleased to stand corrected!

I hope we meet again. :)
