I can speak a little for AltRMI and the FtpServer projects which were
spun out of Avalon oh so long ago.  This was early in the Incubator's
history before we had the guidelines and procedures we do today.  The
FtpServer has seen more recent activity, but those who have expressed
interested in AltRMI (myself included) simply haven't invested in
building a community around it (it was mostly stable code even when it
was in Avalon).  I believe a similar situation may be true of other
dormant incubator projects.

And "dormant" might be better than "failed."  If someone wants to come
along a pick up these projects and re-activate them, they are more
than welcome.
