I am happy to see many people still using ctwm (I use it too of course), but
unfortunately I have really no time now to to all the necessary house keeping
there is to do to maintain the project alive. I have less and less time to answer
questions, or fix bugs, and no time at all for passing patchs and maintaining a
main stream version. I promised a new version several months ago but didn't find
the time to do it.

   If someone is willing to take over the project, he is welcome. It looks very
hard at the first glance to maintain the ctwm code, but if you are fluent in C
and have a few days to become familiar to the code, it is not that difficult
anf I'll be happy to help when necessary.

   It's now more that ten years that I distribute and maintain ctwm (I couldn't
find version 1.0 (if someone has a copy ?) but version 1.1 is dated from 1992-06-24).
Ooops, I feel pretty old suddenly.
