Proposing move of Gibson to CF Attic


Shannon Coen
 

Gibson [1] is a deprecated library for registering HTTP routes with
Gorouter via NATS. The currently supported way to do this is with the BOSH
job route-registrar [2]. Many months ago we removed Gibson as a dependency
of route-registrar in favor of nats.io. The CF Routing team would like to
move Gibson to the CF attic and promote route-registrar to an active CFF
project. We'll formally propose these changes on the Runtime PMC call on
Jan 11, 2017.

If you are still using Gibson, consider switching to route-registrar soon.
As route-registrar is a standalone job meant to be colocated with the
process that requires a route, it should require no code changes to your
project except to remove support for Gibson.
