Hi Nicolas

I suspect that the dev mailing list would have been better, but that
isn't the key issue, finding a) somebody to look after the project and
b) when that is done, migrating the users in a reasonable way to a new
version/release, are the bigger questions. I haven't really even started
thinking about the consequences of publishing apps as OSM /OSMF but it
is naturally not impossible.
