Apache Harmony Moves To Apache Attic 120

think_nix writes "After the resignation of Apache from the Java SE/EE Executive Committee, the time has now come for Harmony to be added to the Apache Attic. Harmony was 'the project to produce an open source cleanroom implementation of Java.' An open vote was taken within the Project Management Committee, which resulted in a 20-2 majority to discontinue development."

    uh, not sure if you even read the original article but..

    There IS an open implementation of java, the openJDK [java.net], which is why this is being shut down (IBM who was the main contributor to Harmony has moved it's resources to openJDK).

    But I guess it's more in line with slashdots javahate if we ignore those facts.
