There's always something I miss... sorry. The subject line should say
Karbor, nor Qinling.

Starting a new thread. Please disregard this one.

> Hello Everyone,
> As you know, Karbor is a leaderless project for the Wallaby cycle, which means there is no PTL
> candidate to lead it in the Wallaby cycle. 'No PTL' and no liaisons for DPL model is one of the criteria
> which triggers TC to start checking the health, maintainers of the project for dropping the project
> from OpenStack Governance[1].
> TC discussed the leaderless project in PTG[2] and checked if the project has maintainers and what
> activities are done in the Victoria development cycle. It seems no functional changes in Karbor repos
> except few gate fixes or community goal commits[3].
> Based on all these checks and no maintainer for Karbor, TC decided to drop this project from OpenStack
> governance in the Wallaby cycle.  Ref: Mandatory Repository Retirement resolution [4] and the detailed process
> is in the project guide docs [5].
> If your organization product/customer use/rely on this project then this is the right time to step forward to
> maintain it otherwise from the Wallaby cycle, Karbor will move out of OpenStack governance by keeping
> their repo under OpenStack namespace with an empty master branch with 'Not Maintained' message in README.
> If someone from old or new maintainers shows interest to continue its development then it can be re-added
> to OpenStack governance.
> With that thanks to Karbor contributors and PTLs (especially Pengju Jiao) for maintaining this project.
