I still continue to read the "kicad-devel" and "kicad-svnnotify" mail
But I do not try to read all messages. Only 70% of messages interesting
for me I read.
Sometimes, I remove a spam from the KiCad wiki and russian forum, try to
look at new versions from SVN.

The problem is - previously, I must use Altium Designer (Protel), but my
new job require to use Orcad. Unfortunately there is no time for me to
use KiCad in a production.

I just want to write some notes for impatient peoples:
Too many projects lose their fans and members, when change the web or
mail hosting. The 99.9% of such relocations was not successful because
of big and small problems in a relocation/migration process and loss of
enthusiasm from peoples who enforce to make such relocations and give up
to make this on 100% with good quality.

Big amount of abandoned, not structured and bad quality web-sites,
dedicated to some projects, give very bad impression about such projects
to the new potential users/developers. Such a sites disperse forces and
make an intricacy.

People, please be very careful with changes in the hosting and think
twice before to propose this!

Much better will be is to improve existing source code and wiki the jump

Best regards!
Igor Plyatov
