[science-iwg] Retiring the Science Working Group

Ahoy everyone,

I have finally come to the conclusion that the Eclipse Science Working Group should be retired. It is not functional; with only me in the board doing very little, and apparently no one wanting to step up. Additionally I believe the Working Group concept is too heavyweight for the workload that we have been able to support.

However, projects are active, and of course we would like to keep it that way. I believe they would not suffer if we shut down the Working Group. Keeping only the Top Level Project and it’s PMC going would be quite sufficient for what we have been trying to achieve. And if need be, we could always establish a new lighter Interest Group[1].

I’m looking forward to your comments and input. If there is not support for an establishing a full board within the next two months, I will ask the Foundation to retire the Science Working Group.

Best regards,
