Well, I'll help out, but I don't really want to transfer stuff to another
server, etc.  It's easily virtualized, if needs be. 

I won't have time for a full scale "code assault" on the Freshmeat problem
until this summer. I've got to finish the XML coding and the online
gradebook for Open Admin first (along with some improved documentation ).
That should conclude major developmental goals in the short term.  
(Target: late spring) It's currently being used in 3 divisions in Sask.
with more planning to implement in the next school year. Thus, this is my
first priority.

I should then have time to work on the Freshmeat problem.

I will however help with anything required for the resumption of the
newsletter, including new code (ie. RSS/XML/RDF, etc.) if you'd like to
look at authoring in some other manner. 

Entirely up to you, Doug.  Let's keep it simple, effective, and
informative. (as it was in the past, IMO) <grin>
