This project was initiated by Richard Wallis (formerly of Talis, now
with OCLC). I'm not sure what happened to stewardship after we
(Talis) sold the library division to Capita. I think (but I'm not
100% sure) that Capita's Prism 3 uses Juice for extensions (at least,
that had been the plan - this article from Aspire's support pages
seems to confirm it:
My guess is that Capita now maintains this project, you might want to
ping Phil John (philjohn - at - capita.co.uk,
https://twitter.com/_philjohn) or Matt Machell (who, according to
Google is on this list). Nobody currently at Talis is, to my
p.s. Jangle (another Talis-bootstrapped project) is sort of trapped in
a similar state - I'm still happy to help anybody that wants to use
it, but due to a series of unfortunate mishaps, the website fell into
a black hole, as well as the main Google Code repo (that, at least, is
on Github now - I still need to try to retrieve the website content).
