I have a couple comments on this;

Yes, but when he did there was some discussion between the two of you on which code base to start from, yours or his.

I agree with you. A CVS tree with network maintainance is needed.

I was really hopeing Kent would send out his current code base for us to move on from. If this is avaliable, this would be my recommendation.

To me there are a couple near term priorities that must be addressed.

  1. Make HyperMail Year-2000 friendly. It is currently not compliant. Kent had fixed this in his source tree (or so I understood).
  2. Put out a reasonably stable version (with the Y2K fixes).
  3. Provide a development version to grow against.

I remember the last time Kent disappeared, there was a phone number for him. I will be more then glad to call, despite the long distance charges, if it would allow us to go forward with Kent's two cents included as well.
