Archive Proposals/OpenDaylight SDN Controller Platform (OSCP)
This document serves as the Termination Proposal for the OpenDaylight SDN Controller Platform (OSCP) project as described in Section 2.3.5 of the Project Lifecycle & Releases document.
Reason for Archiving
The project has been inactive for over 18 months (the last merged patch was on June 4th, 2013) as evidenced by the list of merged patches. This meets the guidelines for a Termination Review initiated by the TSC as described in Section 2.3.5 of the Project Lifecycle & Releases document. Further, we have contacted a representative of the project about archiving the project and they agreed that this was the right course of action.
Impact on Other Projects, Users, and Communities
Since this project has been effectively inactive for 18 months, the impact should be minimal with the exception of occasional people cloning the repository or finding the wiki pages describing the project without understanding that it is not currently maintained. Archiving the project (and thus enabling some cleanup of wiki pages) will likely decrease confusion.
The TSC will attempt to mark wiki pages to clear show that the project has been archived and the projects git repository will be renamed to archived-net-virt-platform at it's archived location. Further, we will add notes in both places pointing to alternate locations to get working with the currently-maintained projects in OpenDaylight.
The project will be archived on the OpenDaylight github mirror with the project name changed from net-virt-platform to archived-net-virt-platform.
Archive Vote and Date
The project was archived on March, 19th 2015 as recorded in the TSC minutes on that date.
