The LM-Sensors Project Site Doesn't Look Like It's Coming Back

HARDWARE --
It's been a year since the last LM-Sensors release and the project isn't as vibrant or active as it once was while the project site has been down for a while now and it doesn't appear to be coming back.

There hasn't been a major LM-Sensors release to talk about in a year and the sensors mailing list has just turned to a collection of spam. Their project site, LM-Sensors.org, has been down for several weeks as noted by various emails from Phoronix readers.

A Phoronix reader today forwarded along the explanation from LM-Sensor's project leader and SUSE developer, Jean Delvares. Jean commented, "server is dead and will not come back. We are migrating everything in other places (kernel.org and maybe github.)"

At least the hwmon kernel drivers continue moving along and we'll end up seeing the LM-Sensors user-space code appear elsewhere.
