No, we're not dead!
... just busy
We're all pretty busy at the moment, both with work, family and other projects. I know edmz has written some import utility which will be in CVS soon, so there at least is some movement here. So don't worry!
I am working on a port of bbps to the rails platform. At the moment this is just a slow-moving pet / hobby project of mine, but it might prove interesting. Rails offers a lot of interesting stuff and it's fun to learn too. I've got a very premature pre-alpha-ish demo of the port up at http://lapis.wzzrd.com. It doesn't work perfectly by far, but then again, it hasn't made smoke come out of my computer either :)
In case I'm not able to write the coming weeks: have a good Christmas, a happy New Year and I'm sure you'll more of us in 2006!
