Hello Stefan,

Spacewalk project will be discontinued. This won't change.
There are other Spacewalk forks of great quality out there. I
encourage to check them and pick the one that matches your needs at
most and start using it (eventually contributing) - if you want to
stay with Spacewalk codebase and technology.
As you mentioned there's still an option to make your own fork
(according to https://spacewalkproject.github.io/trademarkinfo.html).
I believe facts like having the source code in github (thanks to Suse
:-) ), having migrated the build system from an internal Koji instance
to public COPR (thanks to Michael :-) ) make it pretty
straightforward. However I'm not encouraging anyone directly to do so
as it may be much more work than expected. :-)
