status of the VMS port ?

RMS said at some point that someone is working on making emacs work on
VMS.  Who is that person?  
Can you please come forward state what is the status of the VMS port?

It's doubtful that it even compiles now, and configure.in shows that it
has only been supported on VAX.  
grep VMS in src shows 230 hits.  That's a lot of code to support a
platform that is quite obscure.

Unless someone comes forward and announces that he will work on getting
the VMS in good shape, can we deprecate the port in 22.2 and remove it
after that?
