Hey all,

The intrepid Steve Klabnik(apologies if my memory of how to spell that
failed) has suggested the GitHub account be converted to a fancy, new
"organization", and I have made this a reality.

On this note, I hope nobody is upset at my role as so-called co-maintainer
while considering my utter lack of activity in recent months. Just to be
clear, I stepped in mostly to help keep Shoes alive. Steve has been stepping
up into more administrative territory lately and I'm happy to oblige. I'm
still keeping an eye on Shoes, I just don't have it in me to contribute much
these days.

OK, carry on.. :)

Same here, I've been following the mailing list and giving ideas, but
haven't had any time to really work on code or anything.

Awesome, thanks Seth. (and you did get it right)

Not at all. Look at what I did to Hackety until pretty recently, for
example. We've all got tons of stuff to do...

I'm glad. I've been really happy with the progress Shoes has been making
lately, and it just makes sense for me to be just as involved in Shoes. They
really need each other.

Here's the explanation by GitHub:
http://github.com/blog/674-introducing-organizations

TL;DR: The 'shoes' github account isn't a separate account anymore, it's co
owned by seth, mental, and myself. This just means if something needs to be
done, any of the three of us can take care of all administrative functions.

Speaking of which, devyn, I think it makes a lot of sense for shoes to have
a copy of shoes-web, so I've forked it :)

So, just wondering, this organization—did you make a special deal with
GitHub to get it free? Because they don't seem to have an organization deal
for open-source projects…
