I volunteered to take over moonlight. If you are willing to maintain it,
it's ok with me. Just a word of advice: you'll need to use the tools in
slink (the new g++) to get it to compile (at least the last version). The
tools in hamm won't do. You'll also need to package the newest gltt (you
should take it from Joey, too). And you'll need to ask Anthony Fok
<email@example.com> to package FreeType 1.1 to get gltt to compile (I'm CC'ing
Summary: you need the newest gcc/g++ combo to compile moonlight mlc, which
requieres the lastest gltt, which requierest the lastest freetype
(1.1) which is a package by Anthony Fok. Joey has the other two,
and those are the ones you should take over.
