Title: SEUL Project Status

SEUL Project Status

Draft version 0.2

March 7, 1998


The tables, below, list the status of currently underway projects within SEUL. The list is currently under construction. If you know of a project that is underway please mail a description of it, the contact for the project, and which group it belongs in, to Ken Duck.

Submitting project proposals

If there is a project which you think would be useful in SEUL, write to the mailing list for the appropriate group and propose the project. Once you know there are no similar projects underway mail Ken Duck so your project can be added to the list.

Submitting project updates

If you are currently working on a SEUL related project which is not listed here, or if there is an update for your project, please mail it to Ken Duck.

Sometime (hopefully soon) this process will be automated.
