Hello David,

Thanks for the moral support ;-).
This is an opporunity for me to give the message that I am still here
- testing and playing with the code, following the devel-discussions
(Hi Neil, no, my offer didn't melt away but I want to "get into the
mood" of the devel team); when the time will be right, I will become
active, until then I am just keeping up to date and learning (as much
as my personal time allows it).

There is another reason I am quiet for the time being - the main
effort of the dev team is to finish the port to gnome 2 and I'm not
good at gtk, gui... I am more interested in the data/business logic
kind of stuff... so I will gladly participate/contribute to the
separation of business logic from gui - when this will be raised as
priority (this will prevent similar situations to this "gnome1 =>
gnome 2").

About the platform experience: linux seems to be the most suitable
platform for me in this situation (the only OS I have at home...)

Thanks again and kind regards,
