#  Personally, I find it fairly useless, given that we have CVS access.

it kind of reads like credits..  Which got me thinking.. A good field to add
might be underneath MAINTAINER place AUTHOR..  That way someone modifying this
pkg (fixing, wotever) can easily look and see who the original author is, or
wherever bugs/fixes are supposed to go, and send them email.  (the idea being
it would be an email address)  It would probably need to be an optional field
though.. for things which are no longer maintained..  

Just another random idea..  pardon me.. ;)
