It's not about being willing to, but plain lack of time.
I follow this list closely and work as time permits.
After half a year, it's been four weeks now that I am able again to  
build and test on a regular base again.

There are other components on OS X that need some love, like the into which I'm looking atm.

License and renaming is definitely on the list.
I thought to revamp the package, once the winehelper is replaced to  
not double the work.

As already mentioned, I build the dependencies and store them inside  
the apple .app package, which allows for drag'n'drop installation and  

Having the dependencies as frameworks would be even better, as there  
is a lot of trouble with PATHS, especially if multiple environments  
are on the system, like fink and macports.

But if the name-change is the most pressing issue, I will gladly do  
that for you.
