Hello, Peter & Peter,

Many thanks for your positive responses. I think the part about not
having enough updates would change if the project was more accessible.
Even still, there's nothing wrong with small patch releases and
releasing early and often.

I also agree with what Peter Cock mentioned regarding a move to Github
(or even just switching to Git repositories for the current sourceforge
project). A move to Git and working links to the mailing lists and
support channels would do much to lowering barriers to contribution and
user participation. I was truly almost fooled into thinking the project
was abandoned!

Many thanks and regards,
