Well I have plenty of love to give them :) But I'm horribly reluctant
to steal any packages out from underneath someone's nose. I suppose
I'll email him privately (actually CC him this mail) and if he gives
his blessing or does not respond I'll package 1.6. If he is still
unresponsive after that is all said and done we can consider him MIA?
Do people think that is fair? I'm not actually sure he's MIA, that's
just the general sense I'm getting from this thread.
