The i-Installer and the i-Packages will still be available. There  
will be updates and support until 1/1/2007. After  that, I will only  
update stuff if I need it for my own personal use. And something like  
the fully automated updates of the ConTeXt updater will keep running.

Besides, it is all open source and can be downloaded from  
SourceForge. Anybody can download and build i-Installer and i- 
Packages. Until 1/1/2007 I will also work on cleaning up  
documentation etc. to support this. If people want to take over the  
role of i-Packages editor or i-Installer maintainer, I'll help them too.


PS. Thanks all for the (too) kind words.
