If you haven't, you might also reach out on the developer list --

Thanks for the heads up.
Should e.g. Payara who has strong ties to Glassfish be
interested, that could be an option, but like in other cases
should a double lead also be an option, I could help here. I
am project lead of another Eclipse project and I know despite
some other trends and approaches for asynchronous message
handling JMS/MQ are often a key part of Enterprise
infrastructures across industries.
Nigel may be on holiday. His role in Eclipse Open MQ was
intended to be transitional. He has approved PRs that have
come up but there haven't been many. I don't know why he
isn't shown as Lead.
If someone has an interest in this project, we will try
to make a transition happen smoothly. I am trying to line
up some support -- if that's what you would like.

Thanks for the update also to the contributors

project as he did with the JSRs.
While the API/spec probably makes sense and has
relevance to David the strong Apache ties of Tomitribe
may mean a little less relevance to them compared to
ActiveMQ, hence he is not even a committer there at
Any committer can initiate a vote to
add a new committer or project lead. Any
nomination should include a statement of merit
which will become part of the public record.
Existing project committers must then vote on the
nomination. If after a week, we have at least
three positive votes and no negative votes, the
election is declared successful. Note that the PMC
needs to approve all votes; their main role is to
ensure that the process has been correctly
