I agree here. I can't offer to maintain such a page as I sometimes
get too caught up in work for days at a time to get to "hobby" stuff
and it needs more immediacy than that. I guess I could host it, if 
someone was willing to maintain it, but didn't have web space.

Henry, do you want to do this since Al has nominated you?

I agree.

Agreed, but I think the autoconf was ready now and maybe that should
be next to be integrated. Mssrs Spaff and Dickey (sorry for forgetting
the first names guys. I hope I at least spelled 'em right) would have
to decide which of them should be the integrator, but then they seem
to be working together well already. Either Klaus or Rob could go next
for integration.

Agreed subject to my notes on #3 above. 

Wayne, if you are ready for lynx 2.7-dev_a, and you want, I can
host a copy here for both HTTP and FTP download. Just point me
at a full fileset (.zip, .tar.Z, .tar.gz, .lhz, whatever) and tell
me to go for it, and I'll set it up here. Then when whoever goes 
next is ready, I can repeat for lynx 2.7-dev_b and so on. (or should
it be lynx2-7dev1 and lynx2-7dev2? They are shorter.)
