Re: Some supporting UAA projects moving to the attic

Dieu Cao


Just wanted to clarify that I believe as far as CF repo lifecycle, we can't simply transfer repos over to the cff-community github org.
Chip, can you confirm/deny that?
In this scenario, I'd like to propose an alternative, that if Dr. Nic, or someone else is interested in taking over maintenance of these repos, that we work through how to do that in the context of the CFF canonical repos and processes, perhaps in the extensions PMC.

Assuming that's correct, Dr. Nic, would you be interested in being a maintainer for those repos in that context?

Moving cf-uaa-lib & omniauth-uaa-oauth2 into the community org sounds good. Thank you for offering to maintain these repos, Nic.

I have reached out to the teams that rely on cf-uaa-lib. They do still rely on it, but they didn't express any concerns with the proposed move.

I think we can orchestrate this move sooner than the 11/1 date I originally proposed. How about 9/4? This will allow any other community members a chance to voice any opinions.

Can you please move the middle two Ruby client libraries into cf community org instead of the attic; and make me a rubygem owner so I can cut gem releases in future?

I am the last maintainer of omniauth; and I think I had some unmerged PRs for cf-uaa-lib that I’ll merge and release.

I thought ccng (and perhaps bosh director) was using cf-uaa-lib — did they move to another library or still using it?

The UAA team has been taking inventory of the projects it maintains. We've decided to end support for a few of those projects:

We plan on moving these projects into the attic on 11/1/2020. If anybody in the community is interested in maintaining one of these projects, please reach out and let's talk.
