Sequoyah/Termination Review

Communication Channel: http://dev.eclipse.org/mhonarc/lists/sequoyah-dev/maillist.html

History

The Tools for Mobile Linux (TML) project was chartered in the spring of 2007 as a sub-project of DSDP. The purpose of the project was to create OEM-neutral development tools for supporting development of embedded Linux applications for Mobile devices. The Mobile Tools for Java (MTJ) project was also formed in DSDP, inheriting from the earlier EclipseME project.

When DSDP was dissolved, Sequoyah was formed to contain TML and MTJ. Sequoyah was placed in the Tools top-level project. Contributions to Sequoyah have primarily been from Motorola employees as committers, with external contributions from MontaVista, GSoC, and individuals.

Motorola will not be providing support for Sequoyah past September 2012. Attempts to generate interest on mailing lists (sequoyah-dev, sequoyah-android-dev, tools-pmc, cross-project) have not brought any replies, so the best action is to terminate the project.

Mobile Tools for Java (MTJ)

MTJ is a subproject of Sequoyah and will move.

None of the project resources need to change.

  • Git repositories are under /gitroot/mtj
  • Downloads: /home/data/httpd/download.eclipse.org/mtj
  • Hudson job
  • Bugszilla Product: MTJ

The only change is in the project identifier which changes from tools.sequoyah.mtj to tools.mtj.

This will affect the location of the project's summary page, metadata, and place in IPZilla.

MTJ's website is still in CVS. This needs to be moved to Git. We might as well do this as part of this review.

Termination Actions

    • /cvsroot/org.eclipse/www/sequoyah
  2. Retire Bugzilla Product
    • Mark open Bugzilla bugs marked “won't fix”
    • Move bugs from Sequoyah to z_archived
  3. Clean up IPZilla
    • There are no open CQs, nothing to do here.
