I see you're listed as the maintainer of the following ports in


But we haven't seen any updates from you in awhile. Fusil's homepage
is unreachable,

yes, the developer, one of my former coworker, has moved and was hosting
on his adsl connexion the web page.

Giggle's homepage has moved, and I just resolved some
tickets regarding e2fsprogs that had been open for awhile. Are you
still interested in maintaining these ports?

I have offered the ports because I wrote them for myself ( and some
because friends asked me to write them ), but I was not proposed svn
access, nor I did ask for it, mainly because I think I should not ask
it, but have it granted if I do enough work ( but that's likely a
misconception on my side, I know ).

I have likely wrongly filled the maintener field, and didn't realise
that it meant i was official maintener of them.

If not, we can set them
to "no maintainer" and let someone else take them over.

Yes, I am currently no longer running os x, so I cannot commit myself to
maintain these for the moment, and that's the way i was thinking it
would be.

Sorry for the trouble.
