A note about Aeolus’s direction

Hello all,

I wanted to send an update about the lack of recent activity here. Sadly, most of the core contributors have recently moved onto other endeavors.

One of the truly great things about open source, though, is that this doesn’t have to mean that this is where Aeolus ends. Those of us who have carried the torch thus far are moving on, but the project is still out there. The code is available, and I don’t think that any of us intend to abandon the mailing list or IRC channels in the near future, so we’ll likely be able to help others wanting to pick up where we left off.

The Deltacloud project has just released a similar announcement — the project isn’t going away, but some of the regular contributors are moving on.

Imagefactory and Oz are expected to continue as they exist today and not be impacted. Many other projects, however, will likely not see future releases from the existing set of contributors — including Conductor, Audrey, Tim, aeolus-configure or dev-tools, and Winged Monkey.

  1. I really regret the decision, as Aeolus was a great project. Hopefully someone else will pick it up and continue developing it.
