Discontinue Apache POI in Gump

Dominik Stadler
Hi Gump PMC,

The Apache POI PMC held a vote (
http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/poi-dev/201802.mbox/%3cCABdJj56tn5hL_a+gADZD6bC4txxfUUph1aHyqhyDowMkw+pCjA@...%3e)
and came to the conclusion that Gump does not provide enough value for us
to keep putting in the effort maintaining it.

Thus we would like to remove Apache POI from the Gump setup.

Should I just give it a try myself as everybody has commit access?

Thanks... Dominik.

This reminds me I wanted to reach out to the few projects that still use
Gump. Good timing.

I had a quick look and no other project depends on POI so it should be
safe to remove the project descriptor as well as the refernce to it from
the gump.xml profile. If you want to give it a try, go ahead. Please ask
if you need a hand.

Cheers

Done via https://svn.apache.org/viewvc?view=revision&revision=1823548, I
removed the poi.xml and removed it from gump.xml, I did not find any other
occurences of "POI" in there.

Thanks... Dominik.
