Thanks for dropping me a note. I looked at the site, and it looks like it
has some interesting ideas. On the other hand, it covers a very broad array
of topics. Usually, sites that the seul project hosts focus on one or a few
problems, and go very indepth on those problems. The demonix site seems to
be an amalgamation of a bunch of different ideas (link lists, tutorials, a
couple of programs, etc), but none of these is as thorough as I would like.
I would hesitate to send somebody to your list of links, because I think
there are other lists out there that are more thorough and better organized.

Another issue is that it isn't directly obvious to me how it's oriented at
the end-user (see http://www.seul.org/what/manifesto.html for a description
of what we think that means).

I'm not saying your site is bad, or even that we won't host it. It's just
that I would be much more comfortable if you picked a couple of points to
address more deeply, and the reasoning for why these points are related to
end-users was more obvious.

I look forward to hearing from you,
