Subject: What to do?

Hi all. A few months back, I posted TuxOnIce for something like the third time, seeking to see if we could make some progress on getting it merged. The outcome of that was an agreement between Rafael and I that we'd work on getting TuxOnIce functionality (if not the actual code) merged bit by bit, improving swsusp rather than doing an outright merge. Unfortunately, as the intervening months have shown, Rafael is busy with other things and so am I. The few patches I did prepare and post have had no review, and I haven't had a chance to build on or rework them since. (I'd actually like them not to be merged, because I've realised that there are more foundational changes that need to go in first.) Given that this has been the outcome so far, I see no reason to imagine that we're going to make any serious progress any time soon. I'd therefore like to ask whether there's anyone out there who could do one or more of: 1) Step up to the plate and help improve swsusp, without relying on any help from me but with my blessing if they choose to copy wholesale bits of TuxOnIce; 2) Take over maintaining TuxOnIce from me; 3) Some other way forward that hasn't occurred to me. Thoughts, input, flames, whatever else welcome. A lack of deadly silence would be especially appreciated :) Regards, Nigel
