I would be interested in seeing the changes to the mainline bash sources
required for OpenVMS.  This is pretty large to maintain with bash, moreso
since I do not have or anticpate getting any VMS systems.  I can see
adding some of the VMS changes to the bash sources if they are not too
large.

You can go to the head of the `devel' branch:

http://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/bash.git/commit/?h=devel

there should be a `download' link on that page.
