Thank you! That is great information.

Yes, please! I fancy myself a pretty decent coder, but I am *most*
certainly not good with graphics. Any help, in any capacity, is

This is great! I am very excited about this project and what it could
become. Our schools need something like this, and I can see that K12LTSP
is making some pretty decent headway. I LOVE the idea of open-source,
you/me/anyone else can get involved and make things beter for everyone.
Also, I have received several responses from others in the community
that would love to use this, and at least one of those was a commercial
vendor who subscribes to this list. I think a great next step would be
to get a project on SourceForge, or via some project management on my
website, or some other website. With the level of collaboration that
will be required, I think it would be unfair to "hijack" this list. Any
