Glad you like the feature-set - there's still a couple of things it could use and there's probably a never-ending supply of small things. It has been slow lately but I intend to try to pick up the pace a bit again. But it's definitely still being maintained.

And, ponce, thanks for helping everyone get their 0.35.0 to use 14.0 - I check here at least once a day but you've always beat me to all the folks having trouble with that. I thought sure it was well-documented and I don't know what more to do, but I'm sure all the folks appreciate your personal assistance.

Chelyuk - the warning is because sbopkg will overwrite the file which, if you've just added the 14.0 line, won't make any difference because your file will then be identical with what gets installed over the top of it but the idea is that if you want to add a personal repository, you create an additional numbered file like 90-mystuff and that won't get overwritten. But it's usually not long after SBo goes live that sbopkg follows - in this case, I tried to get to it yesterday but didn't make it, so it took an extra day. But I understand just not being able to wait.
