Yeah I know... Was just assuming dormant mode already for my offer, since no one stepped up
already for months (though I did a little work on feedparser to get a nightly build). A dormant
project will however never see a release, so to be blunt : from where I stand currently there
is no need for a release manager, since there is not any activity on feedparser and even if
there someone is stepping up as a release manager, we should have serious doubts about making
an actual release, since currently no one is supporting feedparser and feedparser will slip
into dormant mode pretty quickly again, because of the lack of support.
So there is nothing more to it then trying to fix issues that are in bugzilla (just 3 of them)
and sending/committing patches to improve feedparser and get it in shape. 

I am just volunteering to commit them (with some review) and keep an eye on what the project
is doing.
