as far as I know, being old friend with Jebba, he has moved on and the
group that wanted to take up maintainance of blag hasn't been
following up, so I think your assessment is sadly right. I think BLAG
should be remembered as a great piece of software in the history of
100% free distributions. BTW Jebba is still doing a lot of open source
and open hardware stuff these days, especially in 3d printing...
