Thanks Sivan.

Of course I have every intention of getting this onto the MeeGo site.  However it made sense to engage people via mailing lists as well since I'm more likely to catch them here than with just a listing on MeeGo.com.

Also, I am still trying to figure out how to create a new wiki page for working groups at MeeGo.com.  So far I seem to just be spinning in circles as I cannot find an entry point.  Any help there appreciated!
