OK -- no problem.  Adding staging support is trivial.  See

If you're going to switch to a new fork of the code, then lets do that.
 I take it that means you're going to want to host the distfiles
somewhere else?  You can do it from github if you need to, but it's
probably easier if you just make a tarball and stick it on a webserver

Anyhow, send me what you have as a diff against the current port, and we
can take it from there.  Or rather, we can take it from there
/tomorrow/.  Time for me to retire for the night.
