Ok, I must have lost this mail of yours, at least I cannot find it in my
records.  Sorry about that.  That said, I am lagging behind with work on
etags.  Much, much behind.  And yes, if some other maintainer steps in
to volunteer, I will pass the baton.

Today I tried to recompile etags locally for the first time in a couple
years at least and I am seeing some problems (etags should be able to
compile even outside of the Emacs tree).

If you would like to try, you are welcome!  As a start, please try and
start from the current etags.c version in Emacs trunk.  Then write to
me, I'll try to help you get going, if necessary.

Else, I'll try to reapply the patch and see what comes out.
