        ORO users have been informed, and a notice sent to oro-user about the list closing shortly. We will evaluate traffic over the coming month or two and close the oro-user list when appropriate.

        The oro-dev list has been closed already as part of the Jakarta dev lists merge couple of months ago.

        A notice has been posted on the ORO site. Since the SVN repo is now readonly, I manually added the following to the top of the page:

        <table width="100%" cellpadding="2" cellspacing="0" border="0">
        <tr>
        <td bgcolor="#ff0000"><font face="arial,helvetica.sanserif" color="#ffffff"><a name="Retired"><strong>ORO is Retired</strong></a></font></td>
        </tr>
        <tr>
        <td>
        <blockquote>
        <p>
            As of 2010-09-01, the ORO project is retired. This is an archived site.
        </p>
        <p>
            As there were no new features or releases planned in the future, the Jakarta
            ORO project has been retired and moved to the <a href="http://attic.apache.org">Apache Attic</a>.
            No further ORO development or releases will happen at Jakarta.
        </p>
        <p>
            Users are encouraged to use similar features in newer Java versions, where available.
        </p>  
        <p>
            This site is kept online for archiving purposes only.
        </p>  
        </blockquote>
        </td>
        </tr>
        </table>
        

        Downside obviously is if the site is ever republished (which we don't really expect) the notice will disappear.

        If the site is republished; my assumption has been that it's because it's moving out of the Attic
