Thanks to you guys I got my new phone! Yay.

Hello UBPorts Community,
I'm very happy to hear from you!
I must admit that I didn't expect to hear anything else regarding my little Keepit project after Canonical dropped support for the Touch OS.
I started Keepit back in 2015(ish) because, as a Linux user of a long while I was excited about a "real" Linux based phone. When I finally bought a BQ I quickly discovered that I couldn't use it as a daily driver without a KeePass application, I too found it to be a "must-have" for the platform. So I started back engineering the KeePass file format at the same time trying to learn QML, resurrecting rusty old C++ skills as well as trying to learn the Touch platform itself with its sand-boxing and myriad small quirks and annoyances. My initial intention being only to try to solve my own problem having to carry around two phones and hopefully help a few other people out at the same time if I could.
Now I have been without a Touch phone for around 18 months or more so I am very out-of-loop as to where the platform is at present. Has it moved on at all, can I pick up where I left off 18 months ago? I don't even know if the last version of KeepIt released even runs on the platform anymore.
Am I still interested in developing the app?
Yes I am but I'll be up-front with you I probably have less time to do that now than I did before. So if you (the community/foundation) do decide to donate a device please be aware of that as I would not want to let you guys down or make you feel like you've wasted your resources/money.
