Read back in this thread.  There was no sugestion that someone doesn't 
exist.  Alfredo asked if the project was maintained after discovering that 
there were not many recent commits to the darcs repo and patches for bugs 
which had yet to be merged.  Another user chimed in that they too would like
those patches merged into master and that the lack of a maintainer was what 
was holding things back.  That second user said that they were maintaining 
their fixed repo on github.  Alfredo kindly volunteered to maintain the 
project, and suggested bringing the project onto github.  No assumption was 
ever made by anyone.  Except perhaps Alfredo's assumption that the website 
needed a re-write as well :P

It's part that (and how much activity do you think a Haskell-based project 
gets?  if I applied the Githubbers; Witnesses model to *that* I get a 
rewrite into PHP!) and part that I detest Github evangelists.

It really is The One True Church behavior.  We don't exist, have no 
organization, etc. because we had the presumption to not use The Holy 
Github?  This is the message of Github evangelists, repeatedly, on multiple
