[technology-pmc] Re: BPEL project status

Greetings BPEL folks.

I realize that this is the season of vacations and all... but somebody must be out there to respond. Anyone?

Hey BPEL folks. I've been looking at your project and wanted to make a few observations.

The project website needs to have an "about this project" link [1] that points to the project summary.

The project data (in the portal) appears to have listed the project's home page as the "descriptionurl". This field should contain a pointer to an HTML file containing just a paragraph that describes the project.

Development appears to be slowing down (only five commits in May).

The listed releases are all two years old. Is it time for a new "next release"?

A project plan in the standard format has not been provided. The only plan that I can find [2] is three years old. You really should have an up-to-date plan if you want to attract additional input from the community.

The BPEL project has no architecture council mentors. I believe that it predates the requirement for them. However, I think that you might benefit from getting some involvement from the architecture council. Please consider opening a bug against Community/Architecture Council requesting assistance.

I am concerned that the project is stalled. It appears as though Redhat wants to get involved [3], but that the project is not responding to the requests.

Can somebody please address the issues discussed and provide the PMC with a short status update on the project?
