The following people have showed interest in maintaining some of the
experimental pdb modules:

- - Peter Rindfuss: pdb_mysql <rindfuss at wz-berlin.de>
- - Darrell McGuire: pdb_mysql <dmcguire at pegasys.cc>
- - Ulrich Meis: pdb_pgsql <kenobi at halifax.rwth-aachen.de>
- - Filip Jirsák: pdb_pgsql <filip at jirsak.org>

Nobody has stepped up so far for the pdb_xml backend.

Jerry, what do you think is easiest way to get changes in? Just let
the new maintainers
send patches to you? Or move these modules out of the tree and
maintained seperately (like vfs_vscan, etc)?

I'd of course still be happy to answer any questions regarding the code.
