If no new maintainer can be found, and especially for sed, I hope you
will fork the projects. Forking is a last resort, but it has been known
to get the FSF's attention.

Now that Squeak and Pharo are FSF-free, I do not think it makes sense to
put a lot of investment into GNU Smalltalk. It can always be forked if
someone wants to do something truly innovative with it.
Go, and never darken my towels again! John Cowan
