I was thinking about this too, but I am still unsure. I maintain
some other projects as well, so the remaining time would not be that
much. Anyway, *if* you are taking the project, I'd like to join the

As I (and others) already said, sourceforge.net would be the
best home for CTWM. Why? Because they have a complete environment,
there is place for a website, CVS server, mailinglist mangamement,
a compile-farm (which is a very cool thing) and a lot more
features. But the most important thing is that the whole system
can be managed by multiple users. So if you want to leave the
project someday then the project itself can still reside on
sourceforget.net; and other people can easily join the project.
