I'm not sure if you slipped with that, or meant a different Charles, or 
haven't been keeping up, but in the event it's the latter and since a few 
others may see the announcement and wonder what's up, then find this 
thread, here's a brief explanation...

FWIW, Charles (I assume you mean Charles Kerr) has, "for all in tents and 
porpoises" (^;= "moved on to other interests".  You can read about it here 
if you sort the posts on his name (unthreaded, of course), and read the 
last few he posted, but basically, he said he no longer has reason or 
opportunity to use a news client regularly, and asked for someone else to 
take over pan's upstream maintainership and development.  KHaley already 
had been accumulating patches in the git repository he originally cloned 
off of the official gnome git repo, but apparently isn't interested in 
getting that officially involved with gnome, so while we had what amounts 
to a lead developer, we didn't have an official maintainer.

Which is where Petr Kovar steps in, as he was already an official gnome 
translator and thus has official access to the gnome repository, tho as I 
understand it he (like me) doesn't claim any particular developer skills.  
So we pretty much split the head dev duties from the head maintainer 
duties, with one person doing each, cooperating. =:^)  Meanwhile, based on 
the posts (I've not actually checked the web site personally), it appears 
Petr has gotten a hold of Charles (last I knew I had posted, recommending 
that, but wasn't privy to it actually happening) and now has web site 
maintainership as well, thus the updates there. =:^)

So, for links on the site, Petr is the guy to talk to now. I imagine he'll 
see this tho and update it.  =:^)
