I don't quite know or recall what pkg-e is. And I've spoken to
various people on IRC, but I don't recall who. Is that the channel
folks keep inviting me to? I'm terribly selective about where I IRC
and I'm not likely to join.

I'm certain that I would have orphaned if I were not interested    .
I never had interest in e17 though.

I'm pretty sure I've said that I would like enlightenment package
moved to a team effort. (Eterm, imlib2, and scrot too, for that
matter.) I would like to step away from them all for a bit,
actually, if others could step up.
