I don't think that should hold back a release. I think there are
plenty of people out there that would use cortado if there was a
proper web representation for it. If Maik is the maintainer now, we
should make that "official" and set up a few Web pages at xiph.org
with cortado release tarballs, documentation etc., similar to what is
there for XiphQT or OggDSF. I'd be happy to lend a helping hand. Maik
- what do you think?
