[DRAFT] HiveMind Board Report - March 2009

Here's what I have:

The HiveMind PMC has voted to move HiveMind into the "Attic."  Henri
Yandell has graciously offered to take care of presenting HiveMind to
the Attic PMC and the board for inclusion in the Attic.

It has been a good library/framework to work with and served as a
launch pad for next generation IoC but this seems the right decision.

Thanks to all HiveMind developers!

Re: [DRAFT] HiveMind Board Report - March 2009

I don't get it ... could some one explain this decision?
There were some discussions on this list about HiveMind.
There was even the effort to do a maintenance release. 
I grant you that there was not much reaction to it, but at least the HiveMind PMC should have reacted in some
way ... no one cared to answer to even direct questions about help on this topic ... 

If you planned this anyway for some reasons you could have explained this in the past instead of encourage
further work and then simply stop answering questions ... that's sort of weird, I think :-(

Cheers, 
Jochen

That's a pity ... but no surprise, it was only a question of time ... :(

To explain myself, as I am one who at least talked about contributing to 
HiveMind, but never did:

What I am using and developing is an extension to HiveMind, a thing, that 
would always be a separate project. HiveApp, is I uninspiredly call it, is 
in production about 20 times, and that number is growing and will continue 
to grow.

I needed some things to be done differently, but those were things that the 
majority of "plain HiveMind" users wouldn't care about. This fact makes it 
very difficult for me to start contributing to HiveMind itself, because I'm 
often looking at things from a different perspective. Where some people 
wanted new features, my focus would rather be to open HiveMind to provide 
hooks at implementation-level, where I and possibly other people working at 
low-level could hook into and extend HiveMind.

As an example: HiveMind is largely designed to run within a web application 
server. The way I'm using it, I reverse things: Jetty is running within the 
HiveMind container. Therefore, it's very difficult for me to contribute "my

Re: [DRAFT] HiveMind Board Report - March 2009

It's a direct reaction to the effort.

Users are trying to put together the release. There is no one in the
project committers to support them. Therefore the project needs to be
moved to the Attic which will have clear instructions and support for
others to fork the project with Apache's blessing. Ideally it's not a
fork but rather a closing down at Apache and a starting up elsewhere
with a new group.

So now that the HiveMind committers have voted for that, the Attic
group will be able to use it as a first use case to put together those
instructions/blessing/steps.

Hope that helps - this is specifically to try to help the situation
where a project has an active user base but no developer base, as with
HiveMind.

Thanks for that explanation - it makes the intention clear now :-)

Re: [DRAFT] HiveMind Board Report - March 2009


Hi Henry,

So while the Attic group picks the project up, would you actively be
looking for a group to pick it up, or does a group have to 'announce'
itself to be considered?

Also, for practical things such as patches etc supplied, would these be
available after a closure?

Cheers,

Johan
