:-) All one can do is look ....... Some approaches might be: 1)Understand the branches of the various main linux distributions: I.E. Slackware, Red Hat, Mandriva, Suse, and Debian. a)Slackware - as far as I know - has _one_ developer - Volkerding (sp?) b)Debian derivations seem to be the fastest growing. I believe that at some repositories are shared. RT's decision not to be open source is making it harder - see the explosion of usage of PHP as an alternative _but_ something to consider, is there a hybrid licensing scheme that might work for RT's distribution? I know that cost is a consideration, but another source might be to seek some adhoc consultation from somebody like a network/cross-platform tech from a company like AttachMate. -- tj
