Unfortunately I do not know much about vala and my C is not the best, so not sure how much help I can be.
I can contribute with testing, as well as updating the docs (although I'd like to learn Vala), and Allan Day offered to do "a few shiny [design] mockups" today on IRC. Mike _______________________________________________ geary-list mailing list geary-list gnome org

As some of you know I'm the founder of Yorba, the (now defunct) open source company that developed Geary.  I talked last week with Jim Nelson, who was the lead author of Geary, as well as Charles Lindsay who worked on it too at Yorba.

We would all love to see Geary live on.  (I use Geary every day, and am writing this message in it now!)  Unfortunately none of the 3 of us have time to contribute to development at this point.

If someone wants to volunteer to be the new primary maintainer, we would be interested in passing the baton.  To contribute to the current Geary repository you would need to be a GNOME member.  If that's an issue, we could always move Geary to a repo at GitHub and continue work there.

Anyone who maintains Geary should be committed to reviewing and commiting patches from other contributors as appropriate.  I believe there may be a few patches sitting in GNOME Bugzilla right now.

The more people who can contribute to the effort, the better.  Again, I would be very happy to see Geary live on and improve over time!
