For those who seek the access to the CVS depository, it can be downloaded
from the SourceForge's site at the link

At any rate, cleaning up the code would be applausible. It'll give
a chance to other interested developers who are now deterred by the
current complexity of the sources to jump in.

Wayne's e-mail address can be found on the trn project web page at the

is adding your id to the project developer list. I also believe it
wouldn't be a great problem for him.
