Aether has been at Eclipse for several years, but the project has never garnered much of a community and the only real consumer of note is the Apache Maven project. The number of contributions have been slight and the people who have wanted to make larger contributions are confused by the project being at Eclipse. We also recently lost the person who did the majority of the work on the project. Given the requirement of Apache Maven on Aether the development team feels it's best for the project to go back to Apache where the Apache Maven committers are more apt to contirbute to the code, and hopefully community members as well.
