Nova just removed ec2 support from tree in Mitaka, dependent on this
project being a replacement for that functionality. It is troubling that
nobody stepped up to be PTL, but as recent as Tokyo there was active
participation from them in getting things settled in Nova so that the
project could be a suitable replacement. Aside from the practical
problem of not having a PTL, it seems like dropping EC2-API from the
official project list right as Mitaka requires people to use it sends a
bad (or at least unfortunate) message.

Has anyone approached some of the principal folks involved to find out
what is up?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but Matt is PTL by default now right?
