Gitlab Inc sponsored hosting of this service for last 6 years (2016-2022). This sponsorship ends in December 2022. Thanks to Gitlab Inc for their support till now.

I have asked Zigo from Infomaniak about sponsorship at DebConf and they seemed interested (they already sponsor But I'd like to step down as maintainer of this service and will follow up with them only if new people volunteer to maintain it.

Please reply to this thread before 31st October 2022, if you'd like to volunteer to continue maintaining this service.
