Fwd: [DISCUSS] The future of mod_perl
Message ID:
Just received.
Is this a wake-up call ?

I am just a (enthousiastic but old) *user* of perl and mod_perl, and in no way technically 
capable of contributing to a project like this.
But I feel that "losing" (*) mod_perl would be a major blow to perl in general.

(*) If this is really what the email below is hinting at, and if I'm not over-dramatising

Dear community members,

As projects mature, they will naturally reach a point where activity reduces to a level 
such that the project is no longer sustainable.  At Apache, projects reach this stage when 
there are not at least 3 active PMC members providing oversight. Projects that reach this 
stage are usually placed in the Attic [1] or absorbed by another Apache project willing to 
manage its releases.

If you are interested in seeing mod_perl remain an active project, and are able to help 
maintain and provide oversight, please respond in this thread indicating that you are 
interested in performing the duties of a PMC member[2].
