The Static Site Generator Sculpin gets a New Maintainer

The PHP static site generator Sculpin announced it’s changing maintainers from Beau Simensen to Chris Tankersley.

In the announcement, Beau said the following for why he is stepping down:

This was not an easy decision for me to make. I’ve been thinking about it for a few years now. It isn’t fair to the community for my continued lack of time and energy to hold Sculpin back from moving forward.

The hardest thing for me is that Sculpin, as it stands right now, works great for me. I maintain dozens of Sculpin sites and they’ve all worked great for the last two to three years.

There are things I’d love to change but it has become clear to me that I neither have the time nor energy to make it happen.

Chris, in reference to taking over:

Sculpin has been a big part of my workflow since I started working with it, and it is one of the projects near and dear to my heart. When Beau decided to step down, it was not a hard decision to step up and help keep this project going. Sculpin is a stable, dependable static site builder, and I would hate to see it go away.

I plan on coming up with some exciting new features for Sculpin in addition to updating the codebase. I hope you all come along for the ride.

I’m happy to see the project continue to be developed and excited for both Chris and Beau. I hope the new features and updating the code base helps the project be successful.
