"Project Duke" was approved in April 2017 but until now it only has an
empty repository and an empty mailing list with not a single message.
Is this project still active? I'd expected the repo would at least
contain a clone of the corresponding Kenai repository as announced in
your CFV mail.
The original Kenai repo is not accessible any more and I wonder if
that material is still available somewhere?
Thank you and best regards,
