It's not so much in charge of this effort, but to coordinate or 
oversee it so we don't have overlapping effort.  I'm late to this 
effort having only started my work on this last month, but I would 
rather bring up issues specific to this effort to the group working 
on this rather than putting them here on the tech-pkg list.  I'm not 
asking for another list, just to know who is out there working on 
this effort.  I'd much rather bring my pkgsrc-Darwin issues to this 
group than to blindly ask here for help.  (This would help me a lot 
since I could find out what's been done and what hasn't so I know 
which packages to work on/help with and not duplicate effort.)
