Yeah, but in coming back, I'm only finding more stressful and annoying
things to replace them.

I don't comment in bugzilla/bug tracker installs until I have some idea
of what's going on with the code, which is why I sent messages to the
dev at openstreetmap list first. I have no interest in SVN access, I was
just hoping to be able to help fix a few small things -- I believe it
was right after Steve or someone else said "We don't need money or
hardware right now, we need people to fix bugs" so I went and attempted
a few.

As I said in another email, this is probably on my end, with being
unable to regularly receive or send mail to the mailing lists.
