Lots of areas to cover: submission processing, categorization, initial testing, regression testing (and defining those things that require human intervention to test), specialized testing (e.g. CGI scripts), content management and generation, tools, design and architecture, searching, viewers, etc. I think having a single project lead is probably a good idea, but they'll need support from others. It's a great opportunity to exploit REBOL in many different ways. We all know how easy it is for our "fun" collaborative projects to lose steam, but this is something we all want, need, and see the value in so, hopefully, we'll have enough oomph to build the initial momentum needed to get it rolling. As food for thought, what projects/systems can we use as points of reference, good or bad? ActiveState cookbook and Squeak swiki were mentioned. Adrian, could you make some notes on those (e.g. pros and cons)? Python has 'The Vaults of Parnassus': Perl has CPAN: Ruby has a few links at: Euphoria has a simple archive at: --Gregg
