We've talked to the folks that help organize and plan the PTG, and they think other tools (like PTGBot) can be used instead without major trouble. Considering all of this, the OpenDev team would like to retire and shutdown this service.

Thanks a lot for keeping this up for all these years. I've no
complaints, but manila contributors were ardent users of this
ethercalc instance for tracking bugs and release activities through
bugsquash events and hackathons (including the ongoing one ). Does
anyone know of a decent free/opensource hosted spreadsheet
