same as file sharing. But it's a step towards keeping momentum going.

I'm off work tomorrow (contract has been suspended due to a delay at the
client), so I'm going to take some time tomorrow to gather the
information from the ongoing threads and start seeing if I can put
together a high-level WBS that we can start filling in with more specific

Then we can find people to work on the tasks and keep the ball rolling. :)
