@kensanata @switchingsoftware @tobias Cool, thanks.
Would be nice if it was made clear that this is a new effort with credit to the previous (anonymous) author who wishes to remain anonymous.
@aral @kensanata @switchingsoftware @tobias I would say Tobias has been pretty meticulous in that regard, to be honest.
@dajbelshaw @kensanata @switchingsoftware @tobias The “formerly known as” threw me off as it suggested that it changed names when it has changed maintainers and is being salvaged. (Which is great.)
@aral @kensanata @switchingsoftware @tobias I think the problem was that the former maintainer was anonymous, so no-one knew who to contact to take over the project! (it's a Fediverse version of the bus problem...)
@dajbelshaw @kensanata @switchingsoftware @tobias Yeah, and they wish to remain so. They had their reasons for switching it off. Sadly, it’s not my place to disclose them.
