it already requires basically zero maintenance - that is
evident by the fact that it has been un-maintained for several
years, yet it is still running

Unfortunately I don't have time to contribute beyond the trivial right now, but some comments on maintenance:

- there's quite a bit of spam being submitted on h-node, which I occasionally clean out. Yesterday, there were three spam wiki pages created. Issues and comments are regular targets. There is only one other moderator who also sometimes helps out. The current site 'works' in this sense, but as far as I know doesn't sent out email notifications about updates, and more could be done to reduce spam and reduce the maintenance burden on moderators, as well as improve the appearance of the site, which quite often sits with visible spam for a while.

- the only regular code maintenance required is updating the list of operating systems, as pointed out elsewhere on this thread. With h-source and the h-node code being so out of sync, I used to do this manually on the server (Trisquel 9 at least needs to be added)

- I abandoned my attempt to get the h-node and h-source code in sync due to time constraints. The differences were quite large, old software version requirements became an obstacle, and quite a few changes had been made directly on the server. My preference as the easiest option was to make a clean start based on the current h-node code.
