Christian,
Thank you for reaching out. We’ve enjoyed having you as part of
our community, and appreciate the work you all do.
Fd.io does not require you to use the Gerri and other resources we
provide. You are welcome to remain a fd.io project and not use
them if you so choose.
You are also welcome to elect to move on from being a
fd.io project. Those decisions are entirely in the hands of your
project committers :)


It would be helpful to us to know which of those choices you elect,
so that we may proceed in a clear and orderly way :)

While there is no bad history at all with the deb_dpdk FD.io project.
But I'd think that for clarity's sake and cleaning up I'd want to
remove the deb_dpdk FD.io project.

@Luca - you are the only other project committers still active, are
you of the same opinion?
If yes, I think Ed can go on and trigger the full removal.
Hi,

Yes it's fine for me, having multiple "sources" is confusing for end
users. Thanks for all the help!

Hi FD.io,
The deb_dpdk project is thankful for the home and help that we
got in our early years.

We used to use the project:
- https://wiki.fd.io/view/Deb_dpdk

And along that resources for
- Gerrit https://gerrit.fd.io/r/gitweb?p=deb_dpdk.git
- I also saw a mirror on https://github.com/FDio/deb_dpdk
- CI
https://gerrit.fd.io/r/gitweb?p=ci-management.git;a=tree;f=jjb/deb_dpdk;h=efcd3beab9f199566ddd1c6e460600fc1f230d64;hb=HEAD

But we have to admit that times have changed and these days we
are really at home at
- https://salsa.debian.org/debian/dpdk
- https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/dpdk

Therefore I wanted to let you know that you could free up the
resources.

We can even discontinue the subproject itself if you let me know
which process I need to trigger - as an alternative I could also
just update the deb_dpdk wiki page to point to the new places.

Keeping the git/gerrit is probably cheap and worth for history if
you like, but that is entirely up to you.
