We have a couple of Openstack projects that uses WSME for their REST
APIs[1], but WSME project looks abandoned. The review stats are not good,
for the last 40 days the project didn't have a single review from a core
reviewer[2], the bugs are not being triaged nor fixed [3], I have been
trying to get some core people to look at a review for the last ~2 weeks by
asking for reviews in the #wsme channel without success. Plus, if you look
at the merged patches queue you will see that some people approve their own

This all concerns me, I do not want Ironic to rely on unmaintained
technology for our Rest API and I suspect that other projects using WSME
doesn't want that either.

So how can we fix this problem?

* Should projects relying on WSME start thinking about migrating their APIs
to another technology?

* Can we somehow get the core team to start paying more attention to the
project? Or can we elect some people willing to do some review to the core
team ? If so, there's anyone out there that wants help with it?

* Forking the project an option?

* I don't consider it super bad for such a small project, but when nobody
else get things reviewed apart from cores approving their own patches it
does concerns me.
