Who is in charge of the import scripts in the Wordpress team? I  
realize my message arrived in the middle of a political discussion  
about security, but I'd really like to get in touch with someone who  
handles the import scripts, because it would be nice to have an  
import script for Serendipity included in Wordpress and I'd be happy  
to help writing it.
