Thanks
It's been talked about several time before in the thread. I don't think anyone really wants to be saddled with being the maintainer, or just making sure there ARE current maintainers who can guard the kingdom. Maybe some day, but unless Amazon introduces new features into the format, development often comes to stand-still for long periods of time. We could come back from a long hiatus and find that no one with a key to the front door is around anymore.

Hi,

Already tried that and it did not work. We had it on google code for years and nothing was ever done or even used. So we took it down.

The universe of potential users of this project is actually quite small and often don't visit any sourcecode/google code/github sites. Actual editors and authors find us here. There are only ever 2 or 3 active developers at one time.

So we get better input on KindleUnpack from this forum and exchanging patches than we ever did from having a repository. Except for a recent flourish of new features this past month, KindleUnpack is considered reasonably stable.

If you have something to contribute simply ask about it here and then post a patch.

If your patch does not impede the intent of the package it will most likely be accepted. But please note: KindleUnpack is a Kindle mobi/azw3 diagnostic tool that allows ebook editors/authors to see how their code (and the code of others) has been changed by kindlegen, fix minor bugs, provide a python based documentation as to the compiled mobi/azw4/azw3 format.

It is not a standalone Mobi to epub generator. If you want that, please look towards Calibre instead.

Hope this helps,

KevinH
