> Mike Drob
> Michael Stack

>> Hi Folks,
>> Below I've populated our report for the month of March 2018.
>> https://wiki.apache.org/incubator/March2018 (also below)
>> I've basically initiated the Retirement sentiment which has been
>> prevalent within the HTrace community for some time. I would therefore like
>> to formally open a VOTE to retire HTrace from the Incubator.
>> The VOTE will be open for at least 72 hours.
>> [ ] +1 retire the HTrace podling
>> [ ] -1 NOT NOT retire the HTrace podling (please provide justification)
>> HTrace is a tracing framework intended for use with distributed systems
>> written in java.
>> HTrace has been incubating since 2014-11-11.
>> Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:
>> 1. -
>> 2. -
>> 3. -
>> Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
>> aware of?
>> The HTrace podling has seen no code activity in months. Discussion of
>> sending it to the Attic have been circulating for some time as well.
>> After literally no activity again over the last few months, it looks like
>> it is time to progress with sending HTrace to the Attic.
>> How has the community developed since the last report?
>> It has not.
>> How has the project developed since the last report?
>> It has not.
>> How would you assess the podling's maturity?
>> Please feel free to add your own commentary.
>> [X] Initial setup
>> [X] Working towards first release
>> [X] Community building
>> [ ] Nearing graduation

>> [X](htrace) Lewis John Mcgibbney
>> Comments: In our January 2018 report we mentioned that
>> "HTrace is very quiet. There is opportunity to continue
>> work if we engage with projects already using HTrace. If that does
>> happen, we should retire the podling." We should therefore retire
>> the podling.
