[erlang-questions] Trapexit Open Source Erlang Project Crawler

  Currently there aren't any plans on extending the crawler. If there is need for it we could consider it, but after a quick look through, I've found only 21 Erlang projects on Launchpad, many of which are already hosted elsewhere too. Should that number rise I'd be willing to extend it, but for a handful of projects I don't think the benefits outweigh the "costs" (development + maintenance time).

  Still if you have a very good reason why I should implement it, I'm looking forward to hearing it :).

Have a great day,

Will you plan to add Launchpad?
