I can count at least three people willing to maintain the project (2 of 
which I am completely confident), I am not concerned with discovering 
and fixing bad issues, and that _has_ been done in a timely manner over 
the course of the project's more or less hiatus-like stage. The general 
problem seems to be reporting and management. I made the, now obviously 
silly, attempt of stepping back a bit and seeing if anyone else would 
help out with the secretarial/managerial part of things, clearly that 
did not happen and it's time for me to realize that it was not the best 
of moves.

So, ....

Elsewhere, we have a query for one or more people stepping in and 
helping, and I intend to say 'thank you, please do'.

We also have some sub-projects (new UI and a all-python port) waiting, 
and it is my intention that those projects (which have for now just been 
a hobby side-project in a personal repo), get pushed into the official 
repo under separate branches so more people can work on them.

Thirdly, I'll step up to the plate and get a report written for this 
month, and ask around if others are willing to help out in that area. I 
have enough secretarial work on my plate to do this in a consistent 
manner, so for me it's important to find someone willing to help out 
with the community aspects. We have a ton of users, surely we can 
convert some of those into people willing to help out with the project.

With regards,
