As of October 2014, Ragel will be maintained by Colm Networks.  This is a new consulting company founded by Dr. Adrian D. Thurston.

Since we cannot operate in the open, the git repository for Ragel  will no longer be available. The project will be published as release (and pre-release) tarballs only. On the upside, Ragel will get much more attention.

The license will remain the same: GPLv2 with an exception for the generated code derived from Ragel source.
