Let’s make sure we update https://www.openstack.org/software/ with the change.
The same it true for all retiring projects.

Subject: [tc][all][karbor] Retiring the Karbor project


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.
