Why was Grafpup discontinued? Where can those applications be found?

1. Is there anywhere I can still get grafpup?
2. I am so dissapointed! Why was it removed?
3. As a newbie, I don't understand why there are not indications about this situation? I spent many hours looking, enought to drive off someone not as bull headed as me. We could lose people by something this frustrating. Don't get me wrong--I am so excited about what Linux stands for,and grateful to those who've done this. Please read the last sentance again if I offended you.

Unfortunately, it is pretty common for small one-man distributions or projects to simply fall off the face of the Earth from time to time. With no funding or support, it is easy to see how somebody's "real life" would start to take precedence over whatever side projects they might have.

Nathan stopped working on Grafpup because he didn't have the time, and there was a post on his blog explaining this. He then started again, and got up to 2.01 beta, but I guess is now too busy again. I think Grafpup is dead. It might be resurrected some time, but I wouldn't count on it, and personally I think it would be more sustainable to maintain an .sfs addon for Puppy with Graphics applications instead... but at the moment it's even unclear what Puppy's future will look like.

Why does not work?
I don't know.
