I'm still catching up on the PhpWiki mailing list from the last few
months so bear with me. I will look at the current submitted patches
over the upcoming week.
Fortunately I have more time now (and some new recent inspiration (: )
to work on PhpWiki, and there are a few people who will be helping me
to update the German localizations. I haven't been in contact with the
other developers for a while so I can't say anything about their
personal schedules at the moment.
I hope to clean up a few items to get ready for a 1.3.5 release, but I
don't know yet whether I can do actual SourceForge file releases
without Steve Wainstead (who usually handles it). Anyway, I'll commit
whatever updates I can to CVS so at least they will be more readily
available to everyone.
(The project manager Steve Wainstead must be away on vacation, he is
probably somewhere diving underwater or whatnot.)
