DavidC:

Thanks for the project connect links.=20
I will check into them on Thursday.
Do folks volunteer with an 'existing' effort that works via VPN =
document-sharing, their own list-group, or what?
Is there a rotating role of (or tag-team) contact person?
If no group exists, is there a place to notify other volunteers w/o =
disturbing the questions group?

thanks,
"frank"
