Well, I'm on the slate to yackity-yack at NordU2002 in Helsinki in February. I'm gonna talk about Synergy in Open Commercialism or some such; at any rate, the middle ground between closed/proprietary software and the militant openness of the GPL.
Made some progress on Spackle; added the ability to direct the CVS commit messages to different addresses based on a regex match of the files/modules changed.

About the article about ESR.. oh, never mind. :-/

Don't worry, I won't say anything about it. :-)
