so do i... that's not what i proposed at all. :)

i asked:

a) if anyone's seen jeremy


b) if jeremy is reading this thread, what does he think of granting a  
few other people (e.g. me and perhaps another qualified developer)  
cvs access to dba.

right.  and i certainly value (and then some!) all the work jeremy  
has put into dba so far.  however, for whatever reasons (all of which  
are probably valid and good, and who am i to judge, anyway?), he  
hasn't been able to do anything with this module for over a month.  
there's a backlog of issues piling up... especially given that 4.7.0  
is out and the module still doesn't fully work in 4.7.

i'm not trying to take over, i'm just offering to lend a hand.  i'm  
also fishing for other volunteers who might offer to lend a hand, and/ 
or information about the current maintainer (e.g. "oh, dww, you  
idiot, don't you realize jeremy is really 'xyz' on IRC, and he  
already told you he was going to be gone on vacation for 6 weeks?"). ;)
