              <br>
              with all due respect, this discussion borders on the
              silly.<br>
              <br>
              I'd say, whoever is willing to take the lead on this and
              spend serious<br>
              time researching and investigating, gets to choose. Don't
              be fooled,<br>
              this is a project that needs many man-months of volunteer
              time. If all<br>
              you have offer is ideas about how those who do the work
              should organise<br>
              themselves, maybe that's not the most pressing need right
              now.<br>
