do you own it? would you be willing for it to be subsumed into "texk"?
obviously you could import its CVS, and do all the work on it...

you can put existing CVS repositories into sourceforge, cant you? and
(I assume) merge them in some way? I freely admit, I do not know. and
I am not sure I want to take on the work of managing all this.

how many other people think that we should bite the bullet, and make
all of "texk" a public project under sourceforge, and try to make a
new unified TeX source? who would want to work on it?
