I'm going to contact them members of the kidsgames mailing list (their
topic should be clear from their name) and the leaders of at least all
SEUL-supported game projects and direct them toward you.  I think the most
important thing for something like this to work well is to get as many
voices and viewpoints as possible to participate.

We interpret our self-given mandate rather broadly :-).  GTC (Games Tool
Chest) <http://gtc.seul.org> is a SEUL-supported project, for example, and
seems similar to PPlay.

I'm not sure of the answer, which is why I've CCed this to seul@seul.org. 
Roger or someone else from that mailing list (of SEUL sysarchs) will get
back to you with the information.  Roger, LGDC is getting very nice
services from SunSITE Denmark and doesn't need SEUL hosting.
