Subject Re: Request for mentor assessment
Date Thu, 12 Jun 2014 09:26:07 GMT

Regarding Wave, this comes up periodically. The two mentors (myself and
Christian) are of the opinion that it sitting in the incubator is not
doing harm.

The project is definitely in need of new resource, and I wonder whether
it will gain the necessary, but up until now, those active devs have
wanted to stay here, and mentors have considered this acceptable.
