[alf-dev] Announcing the Archival Review for the Eclipse ALF project

Dear ALF participants and users,
 
It is with regret that we are announcing the termination of the Eclipse ALF project.  The termination review will be held this Wednesday (see the Eclipse Review schedule and announcement, pasted below.)  The call-in numbers can be found on the Eclipse MyFoundation portal pages.
 
The reason for archiving the project is a lack of particiation by organizations or individuals other than those of Serena Software.  While we have been enhancing the code up to the present, there has simply not been sufficient community interest to justify continuing the project as a community activity.
 
Some notes to those with continuing interest:
 
1. The code, website, WIKI, and mailing lists will be archived and will be available for download from Eclipse.
 
2. A major subsystem of ALF is the ALF SSO (Single SignOn) and we are coordinating with the Eclipse Higgins project to contribute that code and continue to develop that code as part of the Higgins project.  Given the synergies of the ALF SSO code with the Higgins components and its focus on identity and authentication, Eclipse Higgins is a natural venue to continue enhancing that code, and we encourage you to take a look at the Higgins project before and after we contribute the SSO components to Higgins.
 
3. The project may be restarted in the future, should there be sufficient interest.
 
4. The ALF project components have been consumed by a commercial product, Serena Business Mashups, and their functionality will continue to be available on a commercial basis from Serema Software as part of that project.
 
We thank all those who have contributed their time, ideas, energy, code, bugs and enhancements to the project.
 
Regards,
Brian

Hello all,


Below is the schedule of upcoming project reviews. Review Calls take place only if an Eclipse member, using the project's Communication Channel (given below), requests that the call be held. Otherwise, the EMO will decide the outcome of the review based on the docuware and community feedback.

The request for the review call must be posted at least 24 hours before the scheduled review time. The EMO will post a message on the Communication Channel stating whether or not the Review Call will be held.
