Hi Esapi Team members

I have begin with the verification process of activity level in the ESAPI
based on the activity level I'll continue to create test cases for those
libraries that are been actively maintained or show a significance level of

>From this preliminary tests I have checked and create tasks in JIRA for

   - Perl==> Last maintained 3 years ago
   - C++
   - Python==>last release from 3 years ago
   - .NET==>last release from 3 years ago
   - C==>Source code last updated 2 years ago
   - Java
   - Classic ASP==>last release from 3 years ago

The projects highlighted in yellow have a very low development activity but
also very little participation of the community.

The other projects show a significant maturity level and activity.

I must say that all of the ESAPI projects show a high level of code
development but the yellow ones are not been maintained in  along time.

I would like to know if as project leaders, do you consider that these
(yellow) projects are indeed inactive?

If that's the case, are you planning to revive  them in a close future(lets
say 6 months)?

I'm trying to test effectively and a project that shows that does not fit
the preliminary health criteria cannot be consider a flagship project.

If anyone has missed the mailing list regarding this I suggest to check to
check it here:


Please let me know your situation regarding these projects. It is essential
to determine the path of the further test plan.
