Actually, I got one reply yesterday, but, I have been pushing this way
too far, and way too long! One of the authors forgot to "Reply all",

I have sent some queries, and hopefully will get some answers. It is
good code, just that it has been unmaintained for many years.

Do you want to put these tasks as low priority, or do you want these
to be taken by any new-comers who can use it as a learning exercise?

Is it possible for you to prioritise the tickets?

Let me know,
