I am very happy to see speech-dispatcher maintained after this sad news
of Luke's departure. Hypra will try helping as much as possible too.
Just we recommend to inform the wide community when the migration to
Github is effective, so that there is a large communicatin about it, as
it is the best way to increase contributions for maintainance and improving.

Best regards,
