+1 to retire.
As Billie pointed out, htrace does not need active and growing community
since it is a library providing minimal functionality.
If we need to revive the development for users, I'm happy to work on it.
If HTrace become subproject of any other project, I'm happy to be on board.

would appear that those whose of us who have VOTE'd have made it quite
clear that retirement is the right thing to do.
According to whimsy however , we do not currently have enough PPMC
VOTE's to move forward with closing this VOTE with any RESULT. Actually,
not one member of the PPMC has VOTE'd yet which is pretty discouraging. At
this stage I think that we should most likely consult the general@incubator
list to seek consensus on how to proceed.
It should be noted that it is really the Mentors who have contributed to
this VOTE thread with VOTE's. I think that this speaks volumes for HTrace's
ability to sustain itself as a viable podling.
The VOTE has been open for at least 72 hours with the following outcome.
 +1 retire the HTrace podling
 -1 NOT NOT retire the HTrace podling (please provide justification)
I have not yet VOTE'd. I am completely aware of the fact however that this
is crunch time for HTrace. I think we either need to graduate as a
subproject OR draft a retirement resolution and propose that HTrace be
sucked into the Attic. I personally would like to see one/more of the
following taking place
- HTrace PPMC to engage with the VOTE if possible
- Sean Busbey/Sheng Wu/Christopher (ctubbsii)/Billie Rinaldi step up and
propose a path for HTrace to graduate as a subproject of project X.
I'll hang on with the VOTE for another ~72 hours and if nothing come of the
above then I will most likely VOTE to retire HTrace.

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

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:
Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
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.

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 not
happen, we should retire the podling." We should therefore retire the
