This is a copy of my blog article at:


I have not blogged for months (although I'm pretty active at Twitter,
you might want to check me out there). And now that you get some proof
of life of me again, it's bad news: As of today, I'm dropping
maintainership for my blogging software qb.

I've been thinking about this step since about July, and it doesn't
seem likely that I'll find the time or the mood to continue working on
qb in the foreseeable future. To be honest with you, code cleanup is
not one of the most enjoyable things to do, and qb needs not only that
but also serious refactoring in order to support new features, and
I've got a more powerful approach in mind (which, yes, will mean new
software coming up).

The current Git repository state has been exported to GitHub as a new
project named qb. Anybody may take it from there, fork and develop it
further. Since I have not found the time to add GPLv3 licensing text
to the source files, I hereby declare qb's current state (commit
9c28be6b0284045b28a7b01c70675ec6cc6e4759) to be licensed under the
terms of the WTFPLv2. Have a lot of fun.

The will be updated accordingly somewhen in the next few days. The
mailing list will be shut down in December. Thanks to everybody using
and developing qb, it was fun working with you. There are no known
security holes, you should be safe to leave your installation online
for as long as you wish.

Update: The logo contest submissions will be online soon. Plus, I've
added a commit ID to the text.
