It's true that I work on an intermediate release, which can be
expected in November. It will be a sanitized code base (only
consisting of wmii-related stuff (wmii, wmiirc), separated libixp,
removed liblitz, separated tools). I don't think Uriel is
working on wmii, he told me that he uses Plan 9 and Inferno atm
and that he doesn't cares about wmii.

I think after the intermediate release it might be a good idea
if Denis G. could take over the maintainership. We have October
already and Kris didn't showed up again, thus I suspect he isn't
interested in continuing wmii development.
