I would like to adopt the Regular expression short answer plugin.
My background is in mathematics (Maths teacher) and I am decent PHP programmer. I am bi national (France, Canada) and I maintain my own Moodle training center (continuing education for professionals project managers) hosting 15+ courses for about 2,000 students at: https://mokanova.com/en/moodle/
I plan to free up time to invest in this plugin and use it in my courses as well as maintain it for the community. I also have a new venture project with a real estate expert to develop a training center for continuing education for realtors.
I used to have a "short answer" activity developed in Actionscript but this is not suitable anymore and I am motivated to champion this plugin.
Let me know what the next step is?

Thanks Kay for the offer.
I want to mention I'm not the original author, but Joseph Rézeau is. I merely kept the plugin on basic life support for the past couple years to make sure it works (mostly) in recent Moodle versions.
Since I lacked the time to address some of the issues of this plugin, your offer is very welcome and I would gladly accept.
However, I have to add that Joseph, the original author, contacted me a few months ago as he found the time to correct and improve the plugins. I haven't even had the time to properly review his new contributions to the code.
Therefore, I have told him about this discussion so that you can be in contact with him and discuss how you can take care of the plugin, while including his recent improvements.
Thanks Kay for the offer to adopt the plugin. I am sorry though. It turned out that all three regexp plugins have been already in the process of maintenance transmission to their original author Joseph Rézeau. I am very happy to see Joseph re-joining the Moodle community and returning back to these successful and popular plugins.
Please feel encouraged to continue contributing to (not only) these plugins by submitting patches, bug reports, documentation or translations. Many thanks in advance.
