The biggest problem is getting a theme that looks the way I like it that doesn't have problems. If FossaMail picks up a new maintainer, I can just move back, but given the lack of an Encrypted Web maintainer, I don't have much hope of that.
Transfer back to another one that is on death row? No thanks. And for FM to flourish it needs more than a maintainer.

I thought it was better than whining and complaining.

Would the FM forum still be hosted in PM forum (like in present times)? Or, would it be up to the new maintainers?

And, would you observe the FM development from distance?

That depends on the new maintainer(s). I'd offer to continue hosting it on the forum if needed, although ultimately it would be best if they have it all in house, of course.

Not really, unless there would be reason to believe that people aren't keeping up on their agreement.
