In the past few years I have realized that I no longer use cx_Freeze myself and my spare time to maintain cx_Freeze is limited. In the past number of months Marcelo Duarte has been doing much of the work of responding to issues and creating pull requests to continue enhancing cx_Freeze. As such, as of today I am transferring the maintenance of cx_Freeze to him. I will continue to be available for consultation but this is a formal recognition that the bulk of the work is now being performed by Marcelo. I wish him all the best!
The new repository is: https://github.com/marcelotduarte/cx_Freeze
