I'm driving it, just currently taken over by 1.5 work and some other
things. We will get to eventually -- I hope soon after the Munich
Subversion Conference next week (http://subconf.com/).

Note: CLA == "Copyright License Agreement", and is not the same as
assigment of copyright. I.e., it is *not* a transfer of ownership,
it is merely a granting of rights.
