Are you guys using it? That's news to us.

The CDS issue has been under discussion and since most of the people we thought were using it aren't, that made us reassess before starting to do that work. We haven't made a final decision.

The EOL annoucnement hasn't been published to the wiki or announce list yet, I'm doing that today, but there's nothing on that road map page that contradicts the EOL decision (in fact we agreed to longer than the tentative date we posted there).

What shift (other than the CDS which hasn't really been decided, and that's why I asked)? We have, essentially over 12 months before the CDS would die of its own accord, so there's been no rush to make a decision.

Any real proposal to end that code base would not be done informally here.
