I just created my fork for some work, and was unawhere of the other forks on github. My bad.
I will look at what the other repos on github have and see about merging their
changes into my repo.

I was going to save this mail until my current round of mcclim hacking is finished, but here
goes. I'm not particularly interested in continuing to work with CVS. Are people agreeable
with moving to git? I'm not invested (at all) in having my github repo become the "official"
repo, but a site like github has a lot of advantages as a host.
