No problem, Mezz.  My availability has also been very limited lately, which is why I've been so quiet.

I just have a few questions:

1. Is https://github.com/pct/freebsd-mate the GitHub repository that you're using?  I didn't see a link to it on any of the FreeBSD GNOME pages.

2. Are the patches for the WANT_GNOME decommission project expected to go into the MarcusCom CVS repository as an intermediate step before they're submitted to the FreeBSD Ports Collection?

3. To where should I/we send the anti-WANT_GNOME patches?  Should these go to freebsd-gnome at FreeBSD.org or marcuscom-devel at marcuscom.com?

4. Can someone give me (AJKehoe) write access to my personal home page on the FreeBSD Wiki (http://wiki.freebsd.org/AJKehoe)?

It's going to be at least another month until I'll have time for this, so I'm in no rush for a reply.  Thanks in advance!
