here's the thread :)

i quite like the idea of grades of status and separating the community
organisational (moving to a separate part of the repository) from the
communication perspective. perhaps we allow different states of dormancy
to let users know a little more.

resources has a lot more interest and has a reasonable chance of being
resurrected. there are interested committers who lack the energy ATM to
push the component forward. if an interested developer or two stepped up
then it could quite easily burst into life again. the code base is
mature but limited. the only reason not to use resources is that it
lacks a formal release.

this is quite different from latka.

it'd be best to get some documentation up before making the move
