Hi, Alexander

I don't know if this is what you were referencing about the interview,
but there was a funded project announcement in June about this:

Just in case that's not what you're referring to.


(Disclaimer:  No, I am not justifying GNATS over Bugzilla, cvs over
svn, etc, etc.  It was unclear to me if you were referring to the same
'interview', and I thought I would provide a link.)
