The github was created a couple of days ago.

https://github.com/mikegeeklabs/melee

I'll have a set of sharable files there by Sunday., with install
instructions.

I've been watching it eat spam.. sure saves on server load and moderator
emails.  The server load is running 0.0 to 0.03... Postfix has been pretty
good about sending out 200+ emails quickly, the only thing getting stuck is
some RBL issues from GoDaddy, and I've gone through their steps to get off
the RBL, it'll probably just take a few days.
