A while back, Lennart Staflin posted the following note on his psgml
home page[1]:

  The future of PSGML: It is currently not in active development. I
  plan to put out one or two bug fix releases and the move the sources
  to source forge (possibly after restructuring the code a bit and
  merging in various patches and additions that has been send to me.)
  I will then invite others to take an active part in the future
  development of PSGML. To start this I have created two mailing lists
  on source forge. A psgml-user for general discussion and questions
  about PSGML and psgml-devel for discussion about the future
  development of PSGML. Visit the SourceForge: Mailing Lists for PSGML[2]
  page to for subscription info.

But he doesn't yet seemed to have really opened up psgml development;
although there have been a few messages on the psgml-user list, there
doesn't seem to have been any discussion yet on the psgml-admin list.

As widely used as psgml is, I'd think there would be a lot of people
interested in the opportunity to contribute to improving it.

Not sure why Lennart isn't advertising it more actively -- the note at
the psgml site seems to be the only announcement he's made anywhere.
Perhaps he's planning to announce it more widely after he finishes the
restructuring and merging in of patches he mentions.
