Yes, this is very sad. I hope he is alive and doing well.

As to Git GUI: if you know your way around Tcl/Tk reasonably well, how
about stepping up and reviewing those PRs? Even if the PRs are not merged,
a review would do those PRs pretty good and we could then take things from

There is no "assigning" here, not really. What is missing is a volunteer
who earned the trust of the Git developers. Reviewing those PRs would go a

I also hope that somebody with reasonable understanding of Tcl/Tk and a
vested interest in Git GUI takes up the responsibility of maintaining it.
Judging by the rate the PRs trickled into, I think it would be a minor time
