It's something I will bring to his attention at some point. The
discussion on the mailing list has been intriguing; I observed several
areas where the OHS would have been just perfect for what they were trying
to do. For example, one of the things they have been doing is developing
requirements documents and RFCs proposing features, all based on mailing
list discussions. The ability to link these documents to the pertinent
e-mail threads would help their cause tremendously. Another thing that
arose was how poor the mailing list was for actually discussing these
items, and several people proposed wish lists that had a lot of overlap
with what we're trying to do. I think it's a good indication that we're
moving in the right direction.
