I've been kind of quiet on the whole topic and not really advertised
for someone else to take it over. I think a big part of that is I
thought my schedule would eventually slow down and I could pick it
back up  again.  Well, it's been a year and I don't see that happening
any time soon.  For the curious, I moved 600 miles away to Montana,
new house, new job, etc.  We're busy building a new playground (

I can definitely lend assistance to someone taking this over.  Here's
what I could help with:
- Initial guidance about setting up WWN issues and how to tackle writing them.
- Some scripts for stats.
- Pointing out which threads to cover.  That can kind of be a
challenge for a while when getting into this.  It's hard to pick out
the important stuff and which stuff should be ignored.
- Co-authoring for a bit.  The process is actually set up pretty well
to allow for multiple collaborators.

Oh, and I'm going to be on vacation for 3 weeks starting next Monday,
so I'm mostly useless until November.

Alex - I think you have the perfect set of skills for this.  When I
started I hadn't read any of the mailing lists, so you've got a leg up
on that.
