I, uh, um, volunteer! Let me check some things first. The idea of hosting
the groff site does appeal to me.

If all works out, I have this in mind:

- The site would be under a GNU license.

- The site style would be similar to, or copy, the GNU style guide.

- Of course, it should be a practical example of applying the new groff

- Deb Richardson's LinuxChix Rules, Be Polite and Be Helpful, will lead
and guide us along our way. Otherwise, there's mine: Be Nice. (I like one
liners.) Take your pick. Voting season is hereby declared _open_. My
short, sweet, terse-is-beautiful Be Nice, Or Deb's long winded
explanation Be Polite & Be Helpful. Cast your vote now!

- Mailman for mailing lists. It's GNU now, too.

- If alllllll else fails, it will at least be a _big_ learning experience
for me. I've not done a decent web site before, but have been working on
starting one.

Not much there at the moment. I'll have several topic/project areas
involving training and analysis. I see infrastructure as very important to
the training and thinking process in how we govern our affairs in this
world. To that end I pick XML/Docbook/HTML with Python/m4/groff. For OS I
pick Debian for their killer support of SGML, XML, Docbook, HTML... All
the stuff a serious change maker could ever want.

So, groff would fit in nicely. At least, I'ld like to see what I can cook
up the next few days. Your input, etc. all appreciated.

- When is next release planned? I know it's pretty soon.
- Can someone provide a .deb package I can download of any betas? RPM if
necessary. I386. Goodness, just a working binary would do. Do _not_ show
me the source. My coding days are history.
