I'm finally giving in to reality and retiring as a Gentoo Dev. I've been effectively inactive since March last year and lack of time means that isn't going to change any time soon. I'll still be using Gentoo of course, so I'll still stick my nose in on bugzilla now and again :) There's not much out there that depends on me; packages that have my name against them as maintainer are: app-admin/eselect-oodict app-text/hunspell app-text/info2html sys-apps/qtparted and app-dicts/myspell-* There's useful work to be done on the myspell dictionaries (which are used by hunspell). Currently various applications install their own copies of dictionaries in various places - something that is just wasteful and lazy. I'd always intended to finish an eselect module for managing myspell dictionaries; got some work done but never finished it off. eselect-oodict was a quick version for dealing with OOo.org dictionaries (which uses myspell dictionaries) and you can find my attempts at a more generic eselect-myspell on bugzilla. Doing that needs co-operation from the relevant applications (particularly the mozilla application set). qtparted is controversial and may not be worth holding on to; see bugzilla for details. Lastly, just to say I've learned a lot from my involvement with Gentoo over the time I was active and it has been very worthwhile for me; hopefully I've managed to contribute at least something back to compensate! All the best, Kev.
