Reviving Pygame -
February 2nd, 2005
As you might have noticed, Pete has been MIA recently. A group of Pygame
users (Bob Ippolito, Rene "illume" Dudfield, Joe "piman" Wreschnig, and
others in #pygame) are trying to organize the 1.7 release in his absence.
If you know of any bugs in Pygame 1.6.2 that haven't been fixed in CVS
(if you don't know and don't know how to check, assume they aren't),
please stop by #pygame on irc.freenode.net, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. If
you've sent any patches to Pete within the past few months and they
haven't gotten applied, please resend them to email@example.com.

We need people to check it out and expand.
