Hey guys,
I got 3 important mails from Jud <jud at judfilm.net>. I actually liked
the work he put into it, and have included the messages below.

Jud, if you are willing to do this kind of work and keep up to date on
these things, I will gladly give you write access to arch-dev-public
to keep us on the ball here. Let me know.

Anyone willing to step up to the plate for any of these (especially
tomk's packages)? I know some of them have already been addressed.

Subject: Core Packages with No Maintainer 20080917

Sorry to bother you with this but I noticed that the Core package:
linux-atm is listed without a maintainer. According the the PKGBUILD
Tobias Powalowski <tpowa at archlinux.org> is listed as the maintainer.

linux-atm       2.5.0
Changes: Version 2.4.1 to 2.5.0 (30-DEC-2007)

Bug fixes
 - building outside the source tree should now work properly
 - TimeTicks (in ilmid) should be unsigned
 - fix zeppelin's handling of LE_ARP REMOTE_ADDRESS flag

New features
 - zeppelin now has a -b option (run in background)
 - zeppelin creates /var/run/lec[itf].pid at startup
 - ilmid updates from ekinzie at cmf.nrl.navy.mil
 - atmswitch from eleblond at init-sys.com
 - point to multipoint signalling support
 - routed br2684 support from ekinzie at cmf.nrl.navy.mil
