There have been numerous patches floating around for a while for rancid, 
including some contributions from myself, but unfortunately John Heasley 
has been somehwat quiet of late.  He was working through the patches from 
the list and received privately for a while.  John, are you out there 
still?  Are there other developers with source access available who can 
afford to spend some time pushing further releases?

I think rancid is a great tool, especially if you live in a Cisco world, 
but outwith that there is still some considerable work to be done.  I am 
keen that rancid doesn't die through lack of maintenance, or requires 
patches to be pulled from numerous sources to gain useful functionality.

Can anyone offer any insight into Rancid's future?
