I have interest in a production-capable -stable branch, and time to 
donate.  What I have less of is skill, but I'd like to change that :)

I'd be happy to do grunt work under the direction of someone more 
experienced, to further this end.  I've built HLFS (and played around 
with a lot of homegrown variations) many times now, and followed the 
list for a year or so.

Let me know how I can help,
