I'd rather not go into it on a list. Thanks. :-)

I'd very much like to continue to build WinAVR. However, I can't do this at 
this time. I'm currently looking for someone else to admin the project.

Of course not. All the various open source AVR projects build on Linux, 
FreeBSD, Windows (via Cygwin or MinGW), and there are reports of a complete 
toolchain on Mac OSX, and it's known to build on Solaris. This is quite a 

If you look at the various project's web sites, you'll find documentation 
on how to build the software. You'll find that the documentation is for 
mainly for *nix, but a lot of time those directions will work for building 
for Windows using Cygwin or MinGW/MSYS. Many of the projects also have 
specific directions for building for Windows (Cygwin/MinGW). One just has 
to be prepared to download most of Cygwin...
So, really, you can build the projects (including avr-libc) yourself....
WinAVR just provided the tools pre-built and all in one installation
