Board Report, Oltu PMC

Oltu PMC Chair: Antonio Sanso (
Date: October 2017


Oltu is a project to develop a Java library which provides an API specification for, and an unconditionally compliant implementation of the OAuth v2.0 specifications.
OAuth is a mechanism that allows users to authenticate and authorize access by another party to resources they control while avoiding the need to share their username and password credentials.


Apache Oltu 1.0 was released on March 3rd 2014.

Release Apache Oltu Auth2 JWT 1.0.3 on 13/02/2017



The activity of the project is really really low. One of the reason is also due the fact OAuth is a protocol that is pretty stable. The other reason is that the team members that are active are busy/demotivated.

I proposed to bring new blood in the PMC by rotating the Chair position but no one seemed to be interested. I do not know if you want to consider the option to move to attic or not. My personal view is that nobody

of the current PMC/committer has time/interest for this project anymore. Said that I guess that Oltu might still used by someone out there. The problem is that even if people created issues and even proposed patches nobody of

us (included myself) reacted to it.



Last new addition tot the team are 2 PMC members: Stein Welberg and Jasha Joachimsthal in June 2016  (13/06/2016)


There are no issues requiring board attention at this time.
