Several months passed since I stated my intent to shutdown WikEmacs. While I still consider the project a failed experiment and stand by everything I wrote in that post, I have received since lots of messages from people who were sad to see WikEmacs go. One person in particular, Jesse Johnson, was committed to seeing the project move forward and offered to take over its stewardship.
In the end I’ve decided that in spirit of the FOSS ideals I don’t have the right to take away something people like and want to use(especially given the fact that they contributed most of the content there) and handed over the domain and the data to Jesse.
WikEmacs has been running for a couple of weeks now under his management and will continue to exist for a long time. If you liked the project I guess this is a good moment to show you love and spread the word.
