Eclipse Golo has been terminated

The Eclipse Golo project has been terminated.

The developers have moved on to other personal and professional priorities. Migrating the code base beyond Java 8 has turned out to be too complex due to the Java Platform Module System introduced with Java 9 and strong encapsulation constraints.

We would like to thank all contributors and participants over the years for their enthusiasm!

Thanks for the ride, it's been a fun one 🙏
