I didn't mean to accuse anyone of slacking! :-)
Fact is though, no-one gets paid to maintain nmh and 
dropouts in activity have occurred, and sometimes that
out of your control anyway (gnu.org break-in)

With arch, everyone can keep hacking/commmiting/branching/
merging with each other and then merge in the 'main' repository
at some later time.  That's just the difference between
centralised and decentralised.

Again, sorry for the apparent criticism!  It was my problem;
zip changed to zipworld and I have to be careful my mail
goes out with the correct from.
