Hi there,

Just wanted to bring up that I've actually went ahead and fixed the
functional gates, I'd also like to volunteer to maintain it.  We've
got some use of it and we've also been contributing fixes for it for
quite sometime:


Thanks for keep it moving for that period in time.  I hope others chime in too.
