My personal opinion is that it is inappropriate to do that. Obviously 
I'm aware or Shanes lack of releases in recent years, but the web site 
was updated less than a year ago.

I thought about the same thing myself some time back, and even posted 
the thought on this list, but having thought about it more, decided it 
was not best.

There has been several comments on the mailing list about Shane not 
liking people meddling with his code. Given the code is GPL'ed, he 
really should not object, but I believe he has done. So I can't help but 
feel he would object to someone taking over the web site, writing to 
CVS, making file releases etc.

I guess others will have a view, but for what it worth, that is mine.
