Indeed, just saw that the maintenance has resumed, although none of the 
new commits are from Ian (I thought he's not interested in working on 
imgfac anymore, so it seemed dead). I also see it's now packaged in 
EPEL, which would make it much simpler to install than back then, trying 
to find each dependency manually and install from source. Not available 
for CentOS 8, though, just for 6 and 7, and we'd probably need builders 
to run 8 as a host.
