I keep an eye on Freshmeat and other places, to make sure I don't see any
good projects that have really bad homes. Generally we move (on average)
one project a week to the SEUL site. This benefits them because they have
a more stable site with better bandwidth, and also because they're
associated with other similar groups, so they get more attention from
people looking at the other SEUL projects.

I'll mention to the projects as we add them that they should drop you a
line if they need help with documentation.

Here at seul, we don't have 'technical problems regarding bandwidth' :)
Seriously, if you want to set up oswg on a seul machine, it's a worthwhile
enough project that we'd be glad to help out. I could set it up for you

I can help out with publicity for such projects, if they're related to
end-users. (For instance, our seul-announce list has 780 members
currently, many of whom are waiting to find a worthwhile project before
jumping into the fray.)

If you want me to include a several-line blurb about the oswg in my
next seul-announce mailing, I'd be happy to do that. (If, that is, you
write one and send it to me.)
Thanks for all your work. :)
