Welcome to the Axiom developer list! :)

Very interesting.

A great deal of work was done by NAG and associates a few years
ago prior to Axiom going open source. All of the hooks are
present in the current open source release and the OpenMath
modules are available but not integrated and tested with the
this release.

Yes, very interested!

As you probably already know, in addition to Axiom itself, we
also operate an online web interface to Axiom and Reduce
called MathAction, which
provides technical and user support services for the project.
MathAction is designed to be easily interfaced to other
packages and I think it would be great to include Singular.
OpenMath support should make this easier.

I would be glad to help. We seem to have been just waiting
for someone like you to come all to motivate us to complete
this part of the open source release. :)

Excellent! When can we get started?
