Jesse Thilo and myself.

BTW, please, keep bug-bison for bugs, and use help-bison for other
matters.  And Hans, please stop CCing to rms, he has other things to do.

I personally have no idea whether the new technology which have been
proposed for Bison would satisfy your needs.  That's probably what
first needs to be checked.

I start to think that CVS branch might be a good approach to Bison's
development.  But I hate them :)

Yep, this will be addressed.
