Hi Richard,

I am indeed :) It's about some time it got some love, and it seems to me 
from looking at the old code it was never up to scratch at any stage, 
just there on the basis of "support".

I'd like to change that, purely for selfish reasons. It's easier for me 
to maintain the PiSi backend than it is for me to go on and write 
alternatives to GNOME PackageKit and integrate PiSi with 
gnome-control-center, tools, etc. Awesome framework just waiting for 
some PiSi love :)

I'll open up a new Gitorious account this evening, push everything into 
it and hit you up with a pull request if that's easier? Or just maintain 
my changed git ?

- Ikey
