I ask because I've been scraping together patches for xv and collecting 
them into a Github repo[1].  I've finished adding all the patches 
collected by Greg Roelofs, patches from OpenBSD, and now I'm working on 
eliminating unsafe calls like strcpy() and sprintf().  Could I get some of 
you VMS people to check out my work and submit any necessary changes?

My overall goal here is to clean up assorted bitrot and somehow convince 
John Bradley to loosen the license.  I believe that I have the most 
up-to-date codebase of xv available at the moment.
