Originally this blog post was named „This ship has sailed“ but it took me nearly as long to publish the blog post as coming to the decision described below. So, for me this ship has more than sailed, it sunk and I fear there is little hope it will ever be rediscovered and salvaged.
Long story short: Due to various reasons I had little time to rewrite the RSVP-App to make it usable by other users. Now, with the release of Laravel 5 there is even more to do and I have even less time.
Thus, I decided to stop further work on the RSVP app. If you are interested in the code and would like to take a look at it, please contact me.
