Yes, I started yesterday.  I had been waiting for this release so that
version skew would not be an issue (precisely what you're referring to
below).  I haven't had a lot of time to devote to this recently.

Certainly, although it requires some coordination.  I've started the
process and hope to get an update out in the next few days; if you are
interested in pitching in or talking about it drop me a line privately
or catch me on IRC on OFTC (handle: attila).  If there is enough
interest maybe we start a channel there to talk about it.

I generally just work in mystuff, not with git.  I could do a wip repo
somewhere under https://github.com/torbsd if enough people think there
is value in it, but unless there are some major issues with an update
it doesn't usually take that long to merit it :-)
