We are happy to announce that the original author of libucontext, Ariadne Conill, has resumed maintainership of the libucontext project. The new upstream Git repository will be at GitHub. There is no replacement mailing list; support and patches sent via email will no longer be available.
Please update your links and package descriptions accordingly, and happy hacking!
