The current Alioth project only has Daniel as admin.

I am among committers but that was for l10n only, which I handed out
to Jens Seidel a few years ago. Not many things happened even on that
matter, mostly because of the development freeze (that is related to
changes in Daniel available free time).

*I* certainly can't help in coding and sorting things out, etc.....but
I can help reviving the project, development, etc, including by
cleaning out the committers list and granting access to whoever might
need it.

Daniel, I know you've always been opened to collaboration and
help. Could you give us your stance about the current discussion?
