Hey everyone, my name is Corey Farwell and I'm an engineer at Kickstarter.

Years back in 2012, some Kickstarter engineers created the rack-attack 
<https://github.com/kickstarter/rack-attack>project, which is a Rack 
middleware for blocking and throttling abusive requests. We still utilize 
and rely on rack-attack, but due to staffing changes and reductions, we 
have not made any significant contributions to the project over the past 
few years. We are fortunate to have a volunteer in the community, Gonzalo 
Rodriguez <https://github.com/grzuy>, who has stepped up to maintain the 
project in our absence. At this point, I personally consider rack-attack to 
be a community-driven project, despite living within the Kickstarter GitHub 
organization.

Fast forward to February of this year, Samuel Williams in Gitter 
<https://gitter.im/rack-attack/rack-attack?at=5e3f4e8919597421f3b97414>suggested 
moving the project to the rack GitHub organization. I ran this idea past 
the Engineering and Legal teams at Kickstarter and got the green light! Is 
this something y'all are interested in? Related– my last day at Kickstarter 
is in two weeks, so if we want this to happen, we might need to move a 
little fast :)

Hope you all are doing okay during this tumultuous time
