Re: FE Package Status of Feb 16, 2006



Hi folks,

I produced a new package status, and tried to fix the reported bugs.  Summary 
is in a separate mail.

I agree, and welcome any propositions :-)

Ok, tried to add those in the email.

I guess anything's possible :-)  I didn't see a big discussion about people 
wanting to be poked by email, so before I go and make a nuisance of myself, 
I'd like to be reasonably confident that it's a Good Thing(tm)

I also added a new section about maintainers, trying to highlight which one 
might need a hand in fixing a large number of open bug reports, and those that 
have not touched CVS in a long while, maybe indicating that they have 
"disappeared" and their packages become orphaned...

Cheers,
					Christian
