I have started (and stuffed up first time DOH) registration at Source

Please if any potential contributors has strong opinions or advice
about this, please let me know. Otherwise I will press ahead. 

One matter is that Source Forge requires a licence to be nominated.
The original code was under "GPL or MPL" but I would like to
migrate to the xlib/libpng license, which is imposes almost no
restrictions on any party to make use of the code. (I will approach
the various implementers privately about this too.) In particular,
I want to make it easy for companies to implement it in commercial
products without complication. 

I'll announce it on various lists when it has been set up.
