*shrug* doesnt really matter to me.  i can continue in my maintenance role for 
Gentoo, but i dont have spare time to be able to be an "upstream" maintainer.  
if Debian wants to host updates and continue development until Tomasz gets 
things back together (shadow cvs, website, mailing lists, etc...) or he just 
passes it on, i can work with either.
