My mistake.  Please accept my apology.  Your enthusiasm and optimism  
should be encouraged.

Please no. ;)  I'm very sorry to have directly addressed you with  
parts of my last message.  When I pointed to the todo list to get the  
versioncontrol API SoC project ready to deploy on d.o, it's  
surprisingly small given the huge task you completed.  At your  
previous rate of progress, you'd easily be able to finish that list  
and add backends for the major RCSs in probably 3 months, not 3  
years.  That '3 year' comment was not directed at you, but a symptom  
of my at times embattled feelings when it seems few are responding to  
my pleas for help.  But those feelings only come when I lose sight of  
the tremendous efforts that yourself, hunmonk, aclight, webchick,  
drewish, and a growing list of many others are already pouring into  
project* + CVS/RCS*.  After witnessing the countless hours wasted on  
pointless flamewars about switching RCSs for Drupal, I'm incredibly  
grateful that you got the community within reach, instead of adding  
to the choir of complaints.  Please continue to contribute to these  
and other efforts, and by all means, don't be silent.

My sincere apologies and thanks,
-Derek (dww)
