I echo this, and Armin Stroß-Radschinski  maybe he and Aclark could
co-ordinate in a friendly and open way tasks between timezones ?

If there are no objections I will through up a open ish (need to
register ? ideas please) project portal using Drupal. / kid Plone 4.
which i hear is awesome at this stuff.

/me is outie for now, would like to continue contributing in some way
as the project goes along but to state again I can not take the lead.
