far it has been successful. :)

Perhaps we ought to make some sort of document /database
that describes the types of software that we may be able
to use.

For Eg:

PINE: Support for IMAP? Has newsreader, not entirely free,
documentation - yes - rating - ?, easy to use - rating ?,
other info etc...also to possibly include the collection
of documentation resources that we can use and draw from.

Maybe there is something that we can already use?
