Project status

http-kit's author (@shenfeng) unfortunately hasn't had much time to maintain http-kit recently. To help out I'll be doing basic issue triage, accepting minor/obvious PRs, etc.

A big thank you to the current contributors for keeping the project going! Additional contributors welcome: please ping me if you'd be interested in lending a hand.
