This brings to mind a related question. It's never clear to me who is exactly
working on what. ISTM that some kind of listing of Work-In-Progress (either
in Perforce or local patches) would be valuable to the project to prevent
duplication. (The projects.html seems to be a) at a much higher level, and
b) terribly out of date).
Yes, I will volunteer to wrangle this information.
Should we create a 'projects@' mailing-list (or at least a place that quick
summaries can be posted to)? Should we rework projects.html to separate
it into Continuing Projects/Work-In-Progress/Research Topics? Should it
be a separate page entirely, built from recent status reports?
