Hi all,

between running around the office, i somehow managed it to talk to Klaas
Freitag for about half an hour.

For general he would be willing to help to fix issues but is not into
"maintaining" the service

Furthermore - he has no problems if we shutdown the service - as he sees
that Hermes may not have become the solution he meant it to be.

TL;DR; if nobody from openSUSE Heroes teams starts caring about Hermes,
we are free to shut it down at any time (from the former maintainers view)

Talking to darix about that topic today, we may have a few showstoppers
here from shutting it down directly, without excuses. But we should
start a process now to find out which are the "blocking elements" on
shutting down Hermes and find a solution for each of those one-by-one.


My opinion is then: announce that in 6 months (time frame debatable) we are
stopping this service due to lack of maintenance (unless a new maintainer steps
up), meanwhile fix your apps that depend on it.
