Today, I've finally decided to drop this project. I really should have done it years ago, but there you go, these decisions take a while with me.

I've been thinking about it over the summer, and I came to realise that my motivation to keep on going with it is virtually none.

This is what I wrote on the mailing list:

Hi all,

Actually, the subject line doesn't say it all, it's really been time for quite a while.

Things are changing, life is going on, and I've been quite aware for a while that I haven't lifted a finger on this project for a long while. I've done some thinking on this and other stuff during the summer, to see where I feel motivated... and I came to the conclusion that my motivation to keep working on ctwm has been close to none for that long while, and that I really need to let go, let someone else take over.

Any takers? I've noticed some activity just recently, so I imagine there should be some interest. As a side note, there's a clone/fork on github, . I believe this was mentioned on this list some time ago. I have no idea if it's of interest.

From a practical point of view, I can keep the web site, monotone database, mail and all that running on my server, but in the long run, it might be a good idea to move it wherever the one taking over wishes. Just tell me what you need and I'll help as much as I can.

Cheers, Richard

P.S. If there are no takers, I will have to consider simply dropping the project. Nothing I particularly enjoy, but...

Among the things I've thought about but never got to actually doing is to add full support for Inter-Client Communication Conventions Manual. I hope whoever takes over gets that going, it would be a nice addition.
