    The website is very active. Source is
    available now. A roadmap just posted to the mail list so I have
    attached it below. Between these efforts and those of the Open
    Groupware Standard/phpGroupware (they are now collaborating projects),
    there is quite a bit of activity that would be directly applicable to
    our work on the OHS, but more on the front (meaning user facing) end
    than the infrastructural components.

    I'd like to announce that now has a Roadmap detailing the features expected to be implemented by the end of the year 2001. Please check this out at:

    In addition, I'd like to announce that will be represented in the Sun booth at the O'Reilly Open Source Conference which is taking place in San Diego, California this month. The whole conference is July 23-27 but the exhibits will be open July 25-27.

    We are sponsoring the keynote on Thursday where our good friend Craig Mundie of Microsoft will be touting the virtues of Shared Source followed by Michael Tiemann of Red Hat who will speak on Open Source. Clearly, this is a MUST SEE!

    We will also be holding a Birds of a Feather session on Thursday night at 7pm to talk about where we've been and how we can better meet the needs of our expanding community in the future.

    Please join us if you will be in the area!
