I nominate you as the new maintainer. :) Since I don't roll my own
anymore I don't actually use the programs, but DJ has used them and
they worked for me at one point. I put the repo on in
git:// I updated the webpage
with the relevant info, but it'll take a little longer for cgit to
display the repo.

Let me know if I can help. This was my first major C project, so you
might find some ugly code in there.

Good luck!
