Hi all,

This little test pretty much shows that I am right. Back in the days I

I am not going into this again. The question here is not how to reach those 
that are already part of the community (subscibers to GNUmed mailing list, 
linuxmednews readers and so on) but those who are not.

Raising awareness is what I had in mind.

a website/wiki
a freshmeat entry
a sourceforge entry
a entry
a softpedia entry
a linkedin group
