Since I am the mentor that started the retirement vote on the podling I will explain my perspective.

What it comes down to is actual diverse activity.  For me, the overwhelming bulk of the work for Chukwa was being done by one person.  While looking at the raw numbers the two projects seem similar, if you scrub the threads where we discuss whether or not to retire Chukwa and also look at who's doing the actual work, it seems to me that the two projects are not exactly the same.
