When I took over the project it appeared to not have been updated or used in a while. It was far behind the latest release cycle. We wanted to clean it up a bit and bring it up to the latest version. We reached out all that we knew of around the project and heard from most but not guilhemfr so we moved forward. This did not sit well with him (was not our intent) so we halted to let Ceph/Red Hat make the decision which is where it is now. We're ready to move but we want to make sure folks are happy too.
