Hi all,

I have plans for it and want to keep it alive.

I think the best approach will be to focus on the system as a general 
application development framework - starting with the API and some core modules 
(admin, setup, preferences).
I also think the majority of the existing applications without a minimum level 
of maintenance has to be put in a historical archive for future reference and a 
possible source of inspiration only.

Important features are:
 * user-handling
 * integration capabilities (xmlrpc/soap/ldap...)
 * building blocks for ui as super-objects prepared to utilize common elements 
(as tables, lists, calendars)
 * mechanism for internal integration across modules
I will fix the API (and core) to a usable state (running php 5.3) - and update 
to the latest 3-party libraries.

I think that once the system is in a shape that makes is possible to install 
and operate - it will attract developers and users.
