Actually I just decided to let the project's actions speak for themselves 
rather than directly address previous emails.  Certian things in my 
private life have cleared up and allowed me some (much needed) cycles to 
spend on Fedora Legacy.

One of the things we need most is QA of current packages.  This does 
include 7.2/8.0 for now, but watch for a mail soon about this.  Pretty 
much all aspects is needed.  Troll through the bugs at fedora.us/LEGACY to 
see my comments on them and what is needed for them.

I didn't take offense at all.  In fact I was rather ashamed that things too 
long as they have.  I have not accepted any more extra work (even though 
the money would be nice) so that I can dedicate time to Legacy.  I really 
appreciate your offers to help out and we could sure use them.
