I think Trapexit was very usefull. There is a lot of interesting
tutorials on it.
The erlmerge is also very interesting so I think it would be a pity to
stop the project.

We are also very busy but maybe we can find a way to make our efforts
converge. Running such a site is time consuming and the burden surely
have to be shared.

I do not know yet how we could go further together, but let's think
about it together :-)
