Yet another reason is that people would imagine that we in Trivandrum
are trying to monopolize every bit of development. That is why, I

devnag maintainers have no objection to move the project to
sarovar.org and indeed it is going to happen very soon, at the latest
by the end of next week.

I hope, still you might spare some time to test the releases and send
