Aging Open Source projects face a different set of problems from emerging ones. For example how do contributors remain motivated when much of the work to be done is maintenance, how can you attract new contributors to a project that seems to be done or how do you avoid the trap of "we've tried that ten years ago"? Some of the issues probably can and even should be tackled when the project is still striving.

In this workshop Stefan will show some of the issues the Apache Ant community faces and what has been tried to far as an introduction. He's keen on learning what other projects do or have tried in the past and how it worked out for them.
