It's not readily visible but we are pretty active.  Not sure how good an 
indicator it is but since the start of the month we've had 131 commits to our 
main cvs tree.  

Recently Jason has been extending Peter's work upon our web site with the goal 
making it easier for us to keep the site up to date.  In fact a fair bit of 
it is generated automatically from our source code trees (from the .py files 
or the README, FAQ, INSTALL, etc files). 

You can preview the testing site at
and  (most complete at the moment)

With the new design, we're trying to convey as much information as possible, 
such as:
  * A section devoted to supported databases (requirements to use them)
  * Release Notes / Change Logs
  * i18n status of each tool (with % translated)
  * Better incorporation of docs
  * A new "Developer's Corner" for people wanting
    to work on GNUe's core code, with API specs, etc. 
  * Integrated ROADMAP/ feature plan list

We know about the broken links, this site isn't quite ready yet. But

I really don't have any excuses for a lack of responce to emails.  I will 
attempt to make better efforts to keep on top of them.
