When I forked this project back in April, I did it because I inherited the Gentoo ebuild, there was a backlog of a dozen or so patches and I was planning on having it tree cleaned. But when people said they still used it, I decided to bug upstream about it. The author, Jeff, said the project was "done". So I forked the code.
Its nice to see that I got two serious bug reports and one major enhencement to the ebuild! So, its not a high volume project, but its definitely still alive.
If you are using it, let me know. Its nice to know that I'm not wasting my time.
