That is a misunderstanding of the purpose of Isabelle/Admin.  As the name 
already says it is for Isabelle/Admin information.  De-facto I've been the 
main maintainer of it, as of many other things now.  It does not help to 
fork-off shadow administrative structures elsewhere.  It will dissipate 
the little resources that we have.

And I am definitely not joining the Isabelle dis-unity wiki to do the 
administrative things there.

It is some minor progress to have such things that were outside any 
repository in a second repository that is not the Isabelle one.  At least 
it is a proper repository, not a virtual whiteboard.  The status of that 
project is unknown to me nonetheless, and we have still many edits of 
shared Unix directories where nobody really know what is or was happening 
at some point.
