Jan,

Perhaps you should contact the project admin or at least
posting to the project mailing list, before assuming the 
project is dead.  Admittedly there has been several
delays and periods of inactivity, but declaring a 
project dead without investigating is quite 
inappropriate.

I agree the project should not be in the top 5 on 
gborg, but it is not dead!  There is a 7.2 port
of the original 6.4 prototype, along with failover
and recovery patches.  There is a plan to produce
a full mulit-master replication solution, but I don't
currently have the time  to commit to the project.  If
there is interest in this type of solution, I'd be
happy to assist in the development. 

I've known you for a while, and have a great
deal of respect for you, but I would have 
expected some kind of communication with me
before this.


Darren
