When the founder and owner of a website passes away, and that person also has been responsible for the technical aspects of running it, usually that will mean that the website closes down.
As matters look right now, the progressor website will continue, lead by Dmitriy Menshikov and Olav Martin Bjornsen. Dmitriy is Vitaly's son, Olav has been Vitaly's main partner for the website since 2008 and the main reviewer for the past 5 years or thereabouts.
That being said, we will not be able to continue with this venture alone. Dmitriy is now looking for people in his network that are able to handle the maintenance and update of the website. Progressor is an old school html website, and updating it does take some time.
As Vitaly left behind quite a few CDs sent to him over the years that he didn't have the capacity to cover, and Olav has a fairly large stack of CDs that needs to be covered as well, any reviewers that are comfortable with the analytical approach used by progressor should feel free to get in touch.
Dmitriy and friends of him have catered for this update. We will need help on a permanent basis moving on from here, and will get back with announcements regarding that if we are unable to find people in our own networks with the capacity to do this.
As of this update, the people commited to www.progressor net is:
Olav Martin Bjornsen
