Unrelatedly, the author hasn't responded to either email or twitter. I've offered to help keep it on life support but they've not responded. So perhaps they're not interested in adding maintainers after all.

Either way, it's likely a dying project and not one we should hold onto.

But I mean, ignoring that it's dying, it's a great piece of software.
