yes.  a few months ago i had a burst of interest in CCK, and dove in  
to start making it better.  i submitted a modest # of patches to the  
issue queue.  at the time, i asked JonBob if he'd be willing to grant  
me commit access so i could get my fixes in and help review other  
patches, and he graciously declined my offer. ;)  most of my patches  
are still languishing there, uncommitted. :(

+1.  i'm in gerhard's situation.  i have a huge new project on the  
horizon that i was planning to rely on CCK for.  given the time  
frame, it'll probably have to be 4.7, not waiting until 4.8/5.0.  if  
i have to maintain my own working version of CCK just for this,  
that'd be a huge pain in the ass and a real shame for everyone.

if killes and me are both poised to abandon the (otherwise obvious)  
choice of using CCK for these new projects, something is clearly  
wrong.  sadly, both of us are awfully busy ;) so i don't think either  
of us are in a position to be a full-time 4.7 CCK maintainer.  but,  
i'm pretty sure we could help out if given the chance. ;)
