Hi,

Apache is a non-profit organization. If we restrict our thinking model to metrics of how many developers, and how many patches are committed in pre-defeined time limit.

Chukwa has soon spent four years incubating, with the activity level dropping off significantly after the first year or two. We have quite a few examples of projects where such history predicts the eventual dissolution of the entire community. There are however also a few cases where the community has been able to revive itself.

The question here isn't about exact metrics or some predefined level of activity that the project should be able to reach, but rather the trajectory you're on. Is there a reasonable expectation that Chukwa can reverse the downward trend in activity? What are you going to do to make that happen?

As discussed, you already tried a few things to revive the community earlier on. What makes this time different? Why would another say six months help if the previous ones didn't?

BR,
