Unfortunately the project has been discontinued (https://www.fossamail.org/) by now, which is really sad.

As my posting here and you packaging it for the MX Test Repo didn't help to keep the project alive, should I close this thread?


Greetings, Joe

They were looking for someone to actually maintain the code, which is far beyond me. I don't think you need to close the thread, but you could mark it with "RESOLVED", I guess. Just not resolved in the manner we would prefer.

Yeah, same with me, obviously. My original idea was to help the developer in keeping the project survive by having it in the increasingly popular MX-16 sphere, so that someone might discover it who likes it, and wishes to maintain the code (viewtopic.php?p=411627#p411627), plus - second idea - motivate the developer to not shut down his project by seeing that some people care. I suppose I wasn't fast enough, I discovered his announcement rather late.

Right you are. Will do so. Thanks a lot for caring.


Greetings, and have a good week, Joe

Sorry, I was imprecise here. By "closing" I meant "marking it as 'solved'" (or marking it as something else).
