Re: How to contact OpenGL package maintainer (where is Sven?)

No response yet from Sven after about a month and no one seems to have heard from him in over a year.
I sent the message below to Haskell-Cafe about a week ago. I got one response saying that Sven has disappeared in the past but reappeared when updates were necessary. I still haven't heard from Sven. Now I'm widening my search. My original email to Sven was on March 11th.It looks like the OpenGL packages on hackage[1,2,3,4] have not been updated in some time. No updates later than Oct 2009. I tried to email Sven directly using the email address listed on hackage but after over two weeks I still haven't heard from him. I sent some patches to the opengl list about a week ago but I noticed that Sven hasn't posted on that list since Oct 2009 when he released the current version of OpenGLRaw. None of the public darcs repos have patches newer than Oct 2009. Also, the homepage url listed in the packages is a 404:My concern is that Sven has disappeared for some reason. I hope he's well. He has always done top notch work in the past maintaining these libraries. Perhaps he's simply busy or lost interest?Does anyone know if he was looking for a new maintainer? Perhaps you've heard from him more recently than Oct 2009?If a new maintainer is needed, I would consider nominating myself :)Thanks,Jason
