Hi Fergus,

I'm still alive, I just have not had time to do substantial work on
distcc for some time.  I do want to collect up the posted patches and
do a new release.

There is a public Arch repository -- if it is broken please let me
know.  I plan to convert this to Bazaar when I next work on it.

If you're working on more fundamental changes it might be good to
discuss the design here first.
