Yes, there are such plans. Right now, I have been spending a lot of time on
my OfflineIMAP project -- gopher://quux.org/1/devel/offlineimap -- and
haven't had a lot of time to devote to Gopher. The patch did indeed go onto
the queue though :-)
Grand plan-wise, I want to discontinue support for UMN gopherd and encourage
people with UMN repositories to switch to PyGopherd, which supports them. I
would then continue to support UMN gopher as a client only.
I find that for these projects, I tend to be bursty -- you'll see a couple
weeks of furious activity, and then a month of silence. Dunno why, it's
just how I seem to work.

I no longer have any NetBSD machines available to me, so feel free to take
over that port (and any other assigned to me in NetBSD). Didn't know that
submitting a port would set me up as a maintainer there :-)

It is, I've just reached my brain bandwidth limit for the week :-)
