organizational stuff...

ok... the question of how to organize the
project has come up...  that's a tough one..

Assuming this get started, I had thought that
a `core' group would arise that would be in
charge... similar to how the various BSD projects
(and maybe the Debian project) are run.

The question is how to start this?  Who gets
to make the initial decisions?

I started this discussion, and created the
mailing list, but how do we take the next step?

People who have the skills and will commit code
will need to speak up.

The important thing now is resources.... who
will create a CVS repository for this work?  I have
machines that we can use, but that would only give
us about 600 or 700 meg of space to start with...
I'm not sure how long that would last....

But whoever has the CVS repository will need to give
out commit privileges.... so at least initially they
will have to decide who works on the project... and
hence who is making the decisions.
