Subject Re: The state of Sirona

Hi John

I think you did the right thing by bringing the point on the table.

AFAIR I already stated some months ago that, regarding the activity and regarding the community
around, we should really think about retirement of Sirona. Some can argue about the fact that
Sirona is a "stable" project that's not really valid: if it's valid we should see questions,
feature requests, etc coming from the user community. And obviously it's not the case. So
I think that Sirona is just use for specific use cases in a very limited community.

My €0.01 ;)

Regards
JB
