JonBob is around for reviewing and commiting I hear.... so bug him ;)...
I depend on cck for several sites and will be doing more work on it as
time goes by. If JonBob wants to hold commit rights there is nothing
stopping the people using cck + drupal 4.7  from using an alternative
repository to keep features up to date. I maintain my own bzr tree of
cck, and merge in CVS regularly.

CCK does work with 4.7, but as with everything requires elbow grease. :)

I'm more concerned about the development that will be required to make
CCK compatible with 4.8/5.0 after the pave the way for cck patch hit
