Done. trunk is now again the trunk. ;)

No problem, I have administrator rights and can add you to the project  
again if you have a new sourceforge account.

For now I think we shouldn't move the repo. SourceForge's svn is  
alright although I don't like the public version of Sourceforge very  
The enterprise SourceForge VMware image is great but needs to be  
hosted and this we can't do probably.

The announce mailing list for MacSword has quite a lot of subscribers,  
maybe there are people that want to help.
I just had Sébastien from this mailing list to help in french  
So there are people around that might are willing to help.

It would be great if you could help on the website and other things if  
you want to.

My plan is to start from scratch with a new software.
I want to release another version of MacSword with dropped Panther  
support with a couple of new features but then I would like to  
concetrate on the new software that also drops Tiger support. Leopard  
really has a couple of nice new features.
I chose a different name, but maybe I'll rename to MacSword NG. :)

But of course you can help whereever you want.
