Yes, please share the Maintain 2 updates to support php5.

University Housing uses Maintain to manage static reservation on several
dozen administrative networks.

Awesome!  I'm glad to hear someone out there still uses and likes
Maintain.  

I guess we'd better release our Maintain 2.5 with php5 support.  Look
for it in a few weeks.

We have successfully ran Maintain within our test labs to do
reservation-based IP assignment (this is an R&D requirement).

It has worked great and been an amazing tool for us, but now the server
it is on is dying.  We tried to vmware converter it over to our new
environment (I think its on redhat 3?) and it was a no-go.  We more
recently tried to rebuild it on RHEL 6 64-bit and ran into the PHP
issue.

At this point with updates and maintenance so dated, management wants us
to look at other free solutions, but nothing really compares to
maintain...

I am definitely interested in any updates or changes made and will
definitely keep an eye on this distro list!

Thank you

- Adam

Maintain 3 was released a long time ago, but it had so many issues that
we were never able to implement it.  

We (OSU Network Services) are talking about a rewrite for OSU, but I
don't know if we will release it as open source software.  I don't want
to promise anything at this point.  Currently we are working on getting
Maintain 2 to support php5 and that is almost ready.

The OSL (http://osuosl.org) is also talking about doing a Maintain
rewrite, with a focus more on data center integration.  I imagine they
will share it when finished.  

Out of curiosity, why do you ask?
