Ok.  I'm glad to hear that.

Would you need me to sponsor your uploads?  The reason I ask is, I'm
trying to give up maintaining XMLTV due to time constraints.  Sponsoring
someone else's packages would potentially take almost as much time as
just maintaining them myself.  

It would be great if we could find another DD who had the time to work
more closely with you than I can afford to. I could then stay on as
co-maintainer just to help out a bit when needed.

Cool.  I recommend following both xmltv-devel and xmltv-users, and
traffic is low enough lately to be manageable.

Where do you think you would host the backported packages?  As I said,
I'd prefer to avoid hosting them myself if possible (currently, they're
served off my own site, cedar-solutions.com).
