 I volunteered some time ago, but never received a response.  So,
 I can only assume I'm either worthless or they aren't looking for
 a maintainer :)  I would hope the 2nd as they say the rules are

The New Testament offers the basis for modern computer coding theory,
in the form of an affirmation of the binary number system.
        But let your communication be Yea, yea; nay, nay: for
        whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil.
                -- Matthew 5:37
