Apache Attic is a project of Apache Software Foundation to provide process and solutions to make it clear when an Apache project has reached its end-of-life. The Attic project was created in November 2008. Also the retired projects can be retained.[1]

Projects may not stay in the attic forever: e.g. Apache XMLBeans is now a project of Apache Poi, but was previously in the attic from July 2013 until June 2018.


This is a (non-exhaustive) list of Apache Attic projects:
