+# OCaml-HTTP is looking for a maintainer
+
+I've been maintainer the [[OCaml-HTTP|hacking/software/ocaml-http]]
+library for quite a while now. It is an OCaml library for implementing
+simple HTTP servers and client. It is way simpler and way less capable
+than the well-known
+[ocamlnet](http://projects.camlcity.org/projects/ocamlnet.html); its
+simplicity is its main strength.
+
+Given that I've lost enthusiasm in the project, and that my free
+software activities are mainly elsewhere, I'm looking for a new
+maintainer of the software. Patches have been accumulating in my
+mailbox for months, which is bad. Also, the project can use being
+moved to the [OCaml forge](http://forge.ocamlcore.org) and a bit of
+clean up would be needed to.
+
+If you are interested in taking over maintenance, please mail me
+privately. If nobody is interested in taking over the maintenance I'll
+declare the project as abandoned (which would be a pity, since I'm
+aware of several users).
