Archive Proposals/Southbound plugin to the OpenContrail platform

This document serves as the Termination Proposal for the Southbound plugin to the OpenContrail platform as described in Section 2.3.5 of the Project Lifecycle & Releases document.

Reason for Archiving

The project will have been inactive for over 18 months on August 6th, 2016 (the last merged patch was on February 6th, 2015) 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. Recent attempts to contact the project have resulted in either no response or requests that they not do any more work and patches be merged on their behalf.

Impact on Other Projects, Users, and Communities

Since this project will have been effectively inactive for over 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.

Mitigation Strategies

The TSC will attempt to mark wiki pages to clear show that the project has been archived and the projects git repository will be renamed to archived-plugin2oc at it's archived location.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.

Archive Location

The project will be archived on the OpenDaylight github mirror with the project name changed from plugin2oc to archived-plugin2oc.

Archive Vote and Date

The project was archived on August 25th, 2016 as recorded in the TSC minutes on that date.
