Give me access to icecast.org and I will. Otherwise, are you asking me
(or others) to go ahead and hijack the project, or to take all of the code
and call it something else? Aside from a few minor problems (an occassional
crash in ices and icecast not cleaning up properly during shutdown from an
suid'd run), I don't really have many problems with icecast1. The directory
servers don't appear to be working very well, but it's not a problem with
the client, apparently. I'll be happy to update the web page, however, and
I'll even include icecast2 status if some developers want to give me a
high-level progress report. If no one is willing to offer me or anyone else
this access, then replies like yours are just trolls.
