possibly all the smileys in the mails mean, that the maintainer job 
offer is a joke because i am primarily an sysadmin and no developer, but 
if not i would do it. :)

in my opinion, google code is not necessary, because setting up revision 
control, bugtracker and a wiki is quit simple. we should add a project 
domain, a small website which contains some informations about the 
current state of the project and which goal we in fact try to reach. 
additionally to the mailing list a forum would be really usefull.

i can set this stuff up if i should. if it is not possible on the telana 
server, i can also do this on one of my servers. what do you think about 
that sean?

a switch to the apache license is a great idea!

a 0.4.0 "fusion" release would be a great start for all this changes.
