If it's easier to put up a static and invite people to send in patches
somehow, that's fine by me.  I just find it a useful archive from time

Sadly not.  I'm as cynical as it gets.  Off-list, I was told that
http://www.connectingforhealth.nhs.gov.uk/ was built on debian (now
upgraded to Ubuntu), Apache, Zope and Plone; and that there's a case
study of Beaumont Hospital's moves towards free software at
http://www.netproject.com/online.html just now.

Thanks for the tips,
