Uwe,

It was unclear whether you were referring to chron or its as being unmaintained.

I still maintain its, and I'm actually releasing a new version tonight since Kurt has pointed out that the current version is failing package checking.

It seems that both its and chron use namespaces. I thought the intent of namespaces was to prevent problems like this.

If there are namespace experts out there who can suggest a fix to this problem, I'm happy to put it into the next release.
