    Description

      I propose we drop the workflowgenerator for the following reasons:

      1. It relies on the gwt-links dependency from com.orange.links, which is hosted on googlecode, which is down now, so it's causing a lot of build failures:
        [ERROR] Failed to execute goal on project oozie-workflowgenerator: Could not resolve dependencies for project org.apache.oozie:oozie-workflowgenerator:war:4.3.0-SNAPSHOT: Failure to find com.orange.links:gwt-links:jar:1.3-SNAPSHOT in http://gwt-links.googlecode.com/svn/repository was cached in the local repository, resolution will not be reattempted until the update interval of gwt-links has elapsed or updates are forced -> [Help 1]
        
      2. It hasn't been really updated in 3 or 4 years now. Nobody is actively maintaining it or testing it (as far as I know). It surely lacks newer features like Spark Action support.
      3. Other UI editors, such as Hue, are more widely adopted, better maintained, and easier to use/install.
