Hi Eric,

thanks for asking for our comments on your call of interest!

Before reading further I would like to express two (imho) important
questions that you surely could answer easily:

a) Who is "we" ?
   What company/organisation are you working in?
   Is "Document Conversion Systems" a company?

b) What is "an Open Source Software project environment" ?
   Will all sources resulting from this project be under the

        GNU General Public License ?

   Since "Document Conversion Systems" might be a company this
   question should be answered very clear if you want to attract
   some Free Software developers.

Please don't get me wrong: I am not trying to critizise - just wanted
to express something I thing is important for the project in general.


PS: Please not that saying "Open Source" does not mean very much: this
    is a very woolly term so - if you don't mind - please think about
    saying "Free Software" instead.
    Of course this only applies IF you WANT to make Free Software.  ;-)
