This was a stupid decision made by bureaucrats. The project still has
potential and the lack of vision and belief from the "board" that those
interested could actually achieve it - it's flat out disappointing.
What's it "cost" the board to actually let it have another chance? There
are other passionate people like myself who use the software everyday..
It's a silent community... This decision came from those who had some
issue with the project for a long time and wouldn't stop until they had
their way... I may be wrong and apologies if I am, but the behind the
scenes information I have points in one direction only.
At this month's board meeting, a resolution was passed to move Apache C++
Standard Library to the Attic, due to inactivity.
The Attic home page  contains some details about its purpose - it is the
destination for Apache projects that can no longer provide oversight or muster
votes for a release. It isn't a reflection on the contributors or the codebase,
and is intended to be non-impacting to users.
Please let us know if you have any questions or comments, or if you are
available to work with the Attic to help with the transition of resources.
