Shotwell was created in 2009 by Yorba, a company focused on building Free Software for the GNOME desktop (such as the Geary email client). Over the course of the last several years, Shotwell has become the go-to app for managing photos on a pretty high percentage of Linux desktops. Unfortunately, maintaining software takes time, and it seems the crew over at Yorba just doesn't have the time anymore. This could have spelled the end for this handy-dandy piece of software. Luckily, Yorba and the elementary OS teams came up with a plan.
