looks like it's my turn to send a ping :)

so, who's still up for helping out?

as far as the road ahead goes:

- fixing remaining bugs.  there are still a small number of "legacy"
  bugs from the old version of the package which should be addressed.
  i think i've been staying on top of the new bugs as much as possible.
- cleanup of init script
  mainly this has to do with the check_nagios portion of the init
  script, which seems for the most part unneccesary and error-prone.
  i already have a pared down version, which i'll run by the list
  at some point.
- nagios-icons
  someone needs to follow up with the upstream authors of the various
  icons tarballs.  i posted the results of some initial googling for who
  they are in a prevoius email, if anyone's interested
- nagios-sounds
  haven't even looked at this yet.  do we have a similar licensing
  issue with these?
- web and db configuration
  i'd like to make some changes in the maintainer scripts regarding
  configuring the web server and database for nagios.  now most of the
  work is done by a bunch of home-rolled code inside the maintscripts,
  and i'd like to take this out and instead have the package depend
  on wwwconfig-common (for the webserver stuff at least).  i'm also
  seperately working on a much more robust framework for configuring
  databases, it might be nice to move to that once it's ready (this
  would be post sarge however).

anything else?
