Thanks for your answer. I know it's a bad time right now, while you are all
working on the new version.

As I've never participated in a distributed project like this, I'd rather
not start out as a 'leader' of a new tree and certainly not alone. So again:
If anyone on the list wants to participate or knows somebody who'll
participate, I'll be happy to pick up the htdig4-tree. But I'll need someone
to guide and help me.
