I guess kind of *right now*. I'm in the process of porting a few of the 
small changes that have been applied to bleadperl in the meantime to a 
github fork of your repository. When I'm done, I'll copy those merged 
files into bleadperl.

In the long run, I wonder whether it might be worthwhile to move the faq 
maintenance back to the core repository. I doubt people would be very 
opposed to giving you commit access to that (and in github times you 
could always use your own fork and send pull requests occasionally).
