This sounds like a good way forward.  I didn't realise that it was all up to 
one person to manage everything.  I suppose we need to identify people 
interested in particular areas of the project who could focus on maintaining 
parts relevant to them.  I would be willing to help maintain the modules I 
have experience with.

I agree, according to the homepage, these people run the list:
jchang at smi.stanford.edu, dag at sonsorol.org, mailteam at open-bio.org
so Jeffrey, can you make the list subscriber only from here:
