Hello all, Following a first email on the topic  I would like to call for a formal vote on Apache James Hupa retirement.
 https://email@example.com/msg70575.html Rationnals: - The latest release (0.3.0) dates from 2012 which is an eternity in computing. - The latest tag on Github is 0.0.3 - The pom references 0.0.5-SNAPSHOT suggesting that 0.0.4 release is lost :-( - This repository is crippled by multiple CVEs (quick dependabot review): - CVE-2021-29425 (commons-io) - GHSA-m6cp-vxjx-65j6 CVE-2017-7656 CVE-2015-2080 CVE-2017-7657 CVE-2019-10241 CVE-2019-10247 (Jetty server) - CVE-2020-9447 (gwtupload) - GHSA-g3wg-6mcf-8jj6 (jetty-webapp) - CVE-2019-17571 (log4j) - CVE-2016-1000031 CVE-2016-3092 (commons-fileupload) - Sporadic activity since 2012 - Zero to no exchanges for several years on the mailing lists. Given that alternatives exists, given that the project is likely not mature, unmaintained and unsecure, I propose to retire this Apache James subproject. |Voting rules: - This is a majority vote as stated in  for procedural issues. - The vote starts at Friday 23rd of July 2021, 4pm UTC+7 - The vote ends at Friday 30th of July 2021, 4pm UTC+7  https://www.apache.org/foundation/voting.html Following this retirement, follow up steps are to be taken as described in   https://firstname.lastname@example.org/msg70585.html | - 1. Get a formal vote on server-dev mailing list - 2. Place a RETIRED_PROJECT file marker in the git - 3. Add a note in the project README - 4. Retire the ISSUE trackers (Project names HUPA and POSTAGE) - 5. Announce it on gene...@james.apache.org and announce@apache - 6. Add a notice to the Apache website, if present - 7.
