    I've been meaning to give the FAQ a thorough going over for a while now.
    (Bits of it are a lot more stale than 2002.)

    I sent Richard a FAQ patch a month ago, which he hasn't responded to, but he
    claims to still be active:

    I sent him the patch in question on July 17th, but haven't heard anything
    back. (I've been a bit out of touch in the past month myself getting back
    into grad school, buying a condo, moving, etc, and haven't followed up yet.)

    If Richard doesn't have time to do it anymore, and there are patches backing
    up, I could give it a whack. I'm not exactly dripping with free time myself
    at the moment, but I usually catch up with all the important pending things
    at least once a week. However, I don't want to usurp anybody's
    maintainership. (I was planning on possibly making my own tree and then
    feeding him incremental patches at whatever rate he responds...)
