I didn't look at the FreeOrion project for quite a while. I just found out they migrated to GitHub a short time ago. That's great news, as GitHub is the place for open source collaborative development right now.
It will hopefully boost the motivation of contributors and bring in new ones too. I'm definitely going to look into the code once more when time permits and see if I can submit a few simple mods that would move things forward a little.
