Thats ok. Amost as soon as I decided I would dedicate some time to learn more 
about pypy  and see if there was anything I could do to help as load more of 
my "proper" work came up and it turned out I had time to do very little! At 
the moment it seems to be quite hard to keep up with some of the changes as 
some major subsystems still seem to be a state of flux, so I may go back to 
being a bit of a lurker until it is obvious what I can do to help!
