"Job Opening" - Mac OS X 10.2 Binary Packages

Dear GHC for Mac OS X Users,

As you probably know, Mac OS X 10.3 a.k.a. Panther is being officially 
released today. I'm going to upgrade my Powerbook right away.

Panther adds some new functions in Darwin (for example, dlfcn.h and 
proper wchar support). GHC will automatically make use of these new 
features, but that means that versions of GHC built on Panther will not 
work on previous versions of Mac OS X.

Which brings me to the point of this mail: When GHC 6.2 is released, I 
probably won't have access to a Mac running Mac OS 10.2 any more, which 
means that my binaries for GHC 6.2 will _require_ Mac OS X 10.3.

So would someone please step forward and accept the role of GHC 
packager for Mac OS X 10.2?
