Call for Authors

The time has come for me to let go some of the open source work that I have been building up throughout the years. I no longer work on python or django projects full time and that is severely limiting my ability to keep up with changes in the framework, and the community.

Because of this, I think it is time to see if these libraries that I’ve helped build could be taken over by others, archived or all together deleted as I’m sure a lot of them could be entirely obsolete by now. I still plan to contribute to open source, and perhaps even some python projects as well, but I want to do so as a contributor and not a leader.

All of the following projects need a new home, and I’ll keep this page updated as needed. If these projects can’t find a new home within 6 months I’ll likely end up shutting them down and deleting the github repos to remove confusion and cruft from within the community. I don’t plan on deleting any of the pypi packages, so existing dependencies should work just fine.

Can you Help?

If you are interested in taking over a project send me a mail derek at stegelman dot com or open up an issue on the relevant github repo. If I feel that you’d be a good candidate we can discuss transfering the project assets.

Other libraries on my GitHub account are surely already obsolete anyway, and I’ll likely be removing them after taking an archive (just in case).
