The last posting I saw by that person, was from about January of
February f last year, where he advised that he was moving away to work
on a PhD, and so would not be able to work on the project for a while.
That was why I had asked whether the project was still active - I had
assumed that someone else may have taken over from him, to continue
Thank you for your response, anyway.
