I agree, especially seeing as there haven't been any major git commits for 
three months and no obvious changes to the code. The last major commit was 
rebranding to the new name and updating configuration files. I wish them the 
best of luck, but I don't see much development happening. Similarly, there 
haven't been any new Gnuspeech releases either.
