As I suspected, Jerry dropped off the list because he's been busy. I
chatted with him and he doesn't have any time to commit to this.

I can comment on that too since I was in the discussion with Jerry and
Tim. We persuaded Tim to relicense the book under the GPL and I was the
one who did the SourceForge set-up. Please see:


Since I'm all for updating The MH Book, I'd be happy to help upload new
files to SourceForge. I may even be able to wordsmith a little (but only
if I get more than one dive and one MH-E release in a year :-). I can
also make you or a volunteer a rand-mh.sourceforge.net developer so that
they can check in changes on their own and answer questions about the
book's roadmap.

It's truly great to see all the activity. Being being on nmh mail evokes
a rather unfamiliar feeling. Thanks a million, Ken and all!
