State of the "Vaults of Parnassus"

Does anybody know what happened to the "Vaults of Parnassus" site at
http://www.vex.net/~x/parnassus/?

"Dr Dobb's weekly Python news" still claims that it "ambitiousl y
collects references to all sorts of Python resources." But I have the
impression that it does not do this any more since April 2005, probably
because we have the Cheese Shop now. It's strange that the site does not
mention that it is not maintained any more, and it is still possible to
submit and update entries, but these changes seem to be discarded.
That's not very nice. Also, I found no contact address on the whole
website. Who is in charge of it?

The Vaults are run by one of my colleagues, who is (as it seems we all
are), rather overworked these days. Last I heard he had someone who was
helping him every once in a while to review the new submissions, but
that was quite a while ago. I don't *think* there's any discarding, but
rather a delay so long in publishing that it would feel like a discard...

Take care,
Mike
