I currently own 'gv', and I don't particularly want to maintain it outside 
of Fedora Core.  Somebody who knows, likes, and uses gv would be a much 
better person for the job, since I also own a bunch of other packages, 
some quite large (openoffice.org).  If some other person was able to focus 
their time on gv, I think that would be a win for users of the package.

This however is my opinion, and isn't necessarily indicative of how 
changes to the gv package will play out.
