At this point it's been 8 months since the last full release of CorrugatedIron. Development has continued since then, but the pace has slowed down considerably.
## The Life Of A Consultant
As a consultant, you're called upon to be a deep specialist in one technology.
OJ Reeves and I started this project because we were both interested in becoming specialists in Riak. We had similar experience. We both worked on Microsoft platforms - OJ with C# and me with SQL Server.
As time passed, though, we both focused more and more on technologies that weren't Riak. OJ veered off into security and I continued to dive deeper into the world of SQL Server. Over time, our interests were pulled in other directions.
It's difficult to find the time to work on an extracurricular project even when everyone is interested in supporting the project. It's harder when you both know that the other person's passions lie elsewhere.
## The State of the Game
As of today, we've implemented 80% of the features that are necessary to support Riak 2.0 on the `develop` branch of CorrugatedIron. The project is in relatively rough shape and neither one of us have committed code in several months.
## Looking for Contributors
We couldn't have foreseen this when we started, or even even 6 months ago, but both OJ and I are no longer able to actively maintain CorrugatedIron.
We're looking for contributors to help us with the maintenance and development of CorrugatedIron. In short: **CorrugatedIron needs a new home**.
Working on CorrugatedIron has been a lot of fun, but priorities have changed and it's time to move on and leave full time development to folks who have the time and energy to work on it.
If you're interested in picking on where we left off, email me at <[hidden email]> and let me know that you're interested. I'm more than happy to help make this transition happen smoothly and painlessly.

Jeremiah has summed it up rather nicely. I'd just like to back it up by saying that I am also happy to help with transition to a new home. While CI isn't a priority for me any more, I'd still like to see it live on.
