Subject Re: [IMPORTANT] The future of XIndice

Fair enough, although this is solving one problem (finding a place to
host it), but doesn't solve the issue of the project itself being a
prime candidate for the Attic anyways as there has been no releases or
discussions or commits (modulo a handful of questions on the user
list) for a long while.
