Call for SAP to release Watcom C++ / Open Watcom to an Open Source Foundation (Apache Foundation?)

I’m hoping that SAP has the wisdom to relinquish control of the Open Watcom (aka Watcom C++) project to an actual foundation that deals with Open Source projects. Perhaps the Apache Foundation?

If you look at the Open Watcom web page (, the project is dead. If SAP isn’t going to rebuild it into an actual product, then it should let it go.
