Good idea!

I really like the idea to report regularly about projects, plans and own
goals. I think that's a good way to keep things alive and perhaps to
arouse somebody else interest in providing assistance, of course only if
time permits.

On the other hand it's a real pity that you are stepping down from
maintaining doom or id software related games. That means Fabian is the
new Doom guru now?

I don't know much about deutex yet but if you can't find a dedicated
doom enthusiast, i might be able to transform the package to source
format 3.0. However i can't promise that i will add new features to it.
So trying to keep the package alive would be my first priority, i can't
promise anything else.
