Currently I have some miscellaneous fixes to various scripts,
(including the changes for the long-promised new upload mechanism),
and I've ported dpkg to HP-UX 10, Solaris, AIX, and Cygwin.
I've begun to implement logging also. I want to familiarize myself
with internals more before working on bigger projects.

That would be 1.4.0 ?
I just wanted to make the CVS tree active again if only so my changes
could be made more public. It should be easy to merge any changes
that I make with your un-changes. :)
