Thanks a lot for your interest in Commons :-) If you want to start
contributing to feedparser, please do so via mailing list discussions
and/or contributing fixes and enhancements as you deem fit. But I
wouldn't want you to invest in feedparser *only* because of Phil's
email, since I would expect someone who takes on this task to be:

 * Capable of being the release manager for feedparser 1.0 (which
means the individual probably needs to be an existing Commons
committer willing to invest time in feedparser with immediate effect).

 * Preferably, a "domain expert", i.e. someone who can, without much
effort, make judgements about the correctness and improvements needed
to the codebase (not from a Java syntactic perspective, rather a
feedparser semantic perspective).
