Its original creators seem to have moved on, due to moving abroad,
other commitments and so on, but there is a new maintainer, Shae
Smittel, who is doing some sterling work. He has a testing version of
the baseline distro now, derived from the current release of Ubuntu,
and he's just got a GPG-signed repository online on the net.

It's still lacking a website, alas, & due to spam, Shae's shut down
the original mailing list & started a new one - something I don't
personally agree with, but hey.

More help would, I'm sure, be much appreciated, though.
