yep, I have to study for an exam but hopefully will find some time do it

well, I did not ask or imply to be hosted on suckless.
I merely made an announcement.

the _obvious reasons_ though, are not so obvious to me.
suckless is supposed to be about software that sucks less,
software that is simple, easy to understand and easy to hack.

if a piece of software is less complex than a suckless project
then the suckless people should want to have it.

otherwise suckless is just like every other organization that
builds their own tools and ties themselves so hard to those
tools that forgets why that organization was created in the first
place, thinking that nothing else can ever work as good

so, the only obvious reasons that I can think of, for not wanting
to host a project under suckless are:
a. the project is not suckless ..
b. a suckless project works just as well/better and is as simple/simpler
    (so such a project does not add any value over the existing one)
c. the project is hosted elsewhere already, and the maintainer does not
    want to move
