Ok, so I lied, the first task was not to get the current code moved to GitHub, it was to create a BlogCFc Twitter account.

Hi everyone, it's me, your new benevolent dictator for BlogCFC. I just wanted to let everyone know that I am busy trying to figure out the 'road map' for BlogCFC. Keep an eye out here as there may be a lot of information forthcoming in the near future.
The first task on my 'To Do' list is get the existing 5.x codebase moved from SVN and into GitHub. This will be happening soon and I will post here when that is done.
I have received many offers of assistance and started to reach out to some people already. For right now, there will be a small, core group of people working to get the next version ready for public consumption. Once we get the next version to a somewhat workable state, the code will be posted to GutHub. If you have not heard from me yet, please be patient, I will be contacting everyone in the coming weeks.

(Cross post from my blog...)
BlogCFC is my oldest, and most widely used, open source product. While it has some questionable architecture (ok, it barely has architecture), I'm proud of what it has accomplished and how it's helped others.
The flip side to this pride is a growing guilt over the fact that I've been able to release 6.0. I took some admirable stabs at it, but, it just never gelled.
A few weeks ago I came to realize that I was holding back BlogCFC as a product. I was a barrier to it growing. I thought about Joe Rinehart (a man I greatly admire) and his decision to hand over the reigns of Model-Glue to Dan Wilson, and it occurred to me that maybe it was time to do the same.
So with that being said, today I'm announcing that I'm stepping down as the project lead for BlogCFC. Scott Stroz will be taking over. He has already reached out to others and has some plans, and I plan on staying heavily involved. (It's funny - now that I'm not "responsible", I actually feel more motivated than before.)
I won't deny - I'm more than a bit sad about this. But I honestly feel like this is for the best. I've got faith in Scott (and the folks he has reached out too).
To everyone who has helped build BlogCFC (and quite a few folks have contributed), I thank you!

Just a minor update. Includes a xml-rpc fix and a robots.txt block for the mobile directory. Thanks go to Dan and James for these.

This just corrects a small, but annoying issue with emails sent for moderated comments.

This version includes mobile fixes, as well as support for not sending hyper cool 10 inch tablets to the mobile version.
