I sent an e-mail to herrekberg (hope i'm not making any fault on the surname) with a patch for the recursive archive problem in the current version of Comix around June if I remember correctly.
Receiving no answer, I was wondering if the project was really alive, seeing that there was no commit since more than one year ?
Well, he might as well be dead and we'd never know. I had some hopes for MComix, but seeing as commit activity went down to zero a few days after project creation, that might be a failure too.
Hello. What do you want to do ? Do you want to fork the software ?
For what it's worth, I've taken over maintenance of MComix. If you have any patches that warrant inclusion, please take a look at http://sf.net/projects/mcomix and post on the issue tracker if necessary.
