Actually, most of the discussion is happening on seul-pub:

Looks interesting. I would be a lot more impressed if 80% of their
site wasn't a 404, or if those few pages which they have up actually
contained technical information rather than "we will cure world hunger,
scheduled release in early 99!"

But I suppose we shall see. Chances are very high that they won't
support older configurations/hardware, from what little I can gleam
from their "documentation" (I feel really bad calling it that).

As an attempt to post on-topic: Twoducks, I highly recommend looking
into other current taskhelp/doc projects and trying to integrate what
you have into them. Otherwise it's going to go unnoticed and unused,
for the most part. Check out the Hivemind discussion on www.freehive.org
and http://home.earthlink.net/~jwynia/freehive/faq.htm
