This is offtopic, but I don't know where else to ask this.

There's an Eclipse plugin called Emacs+ which a number of people (including me) have used for several years. It was (apparently) written by Mark Feber, and maintained by him, along with an extensive documentation wiki and update site. The wiki and update site domain registration expired on 3/1, and Mark doesn't respond to emails.

I don't know what happened to Mark, but for whatever reason, it appears that this plugin no longer has a hosting site. The code is all on Github. Except for one compile error that I believe has a straightforward fix, the plugin is buildable, although I haven't tested the result in a new installation.

I would consider hosting this myself, but I have very little experience maintaining Eclipse plugins. I have no idea whether it's possible to recover Mark's documentation wiki.

If there's someone more qualified to take this over, I and the other existing Emacs+ users would appreciate it.

Fork it on github, build site locally and upload to github releases? Not 100% sure but I have seen binaries on github.
