Oh, interesting! I'd love to hear more about this project! And if we can
help in any way with this, tell us!

We didn't find a "leader" yet, but there's a small group of interested
people, so it seems we're more geared towards a committee thing. So
you're really welcome to join us to share your ideas (and do more if you
want). I think Fernando will ask for the mailing list today, so we'll
hopefully have it soon.
