No, there were some minor problems with annoying portindex's users, but there
have been fully fixed today by killing portindex.

There was no licence actually, i have forgot it. Thanks God for it! This my
mistake makes killing portindex very easy. Copyright laws disables use and
distribuition unless you have permission from by author, which you don't have.

Yes. This is the main reason why project was dropped. I dislike when some of MY
material activity becomes too successful. It will screw up my spiritual life
because I am not very strong in that area. Spiritual life is so sweet, that
after you have tasted it, you will throw out anything just for keeping it.
Anything includes even topmost material pleasures like money, sex, fame,
alcohol, meat, family, friends, own life.
> But I could take maintainership for the port, if that would help!
This will not solve the main problem.

Folks, portindex is now history. I am now playing with writeable ufs2
