Is amavisd-new still being maintained?

I think a good start would be to import the past amavisd-new releases into Github / Gitlab and start collecting issues and pull requests for bugfixes. Not really merge them or even do a new release (which is a fork needing manpower and coordination to avoid fragmentation), but as a central point for known defects and patches floating around on the mailing list.

If no one steps up I can do this.
