Thanks for the reply.  I gave the site a look.  Is the code browseable 
anywhere online, or is that considered a security risk?  I visited the 
CVS web interface at SourceForge and looked around a bit.  Is that just 
for the engine?

I know very little about CORBA other than that SOAP is a smaller, 
slower, XML-based attempt to do a similar thing.  Does the web site use 
the C++ SWORD engine?  Was the SOAP stuff killed or did it just die off 
on its own?

If I got into this project, it would have to be very slowly.  I've used 
CVS, but more as a novelty than a necessity (sharing code with at most 
two other people).  Also no one's ever had to see my JSP code so I'm 
sure I don't use the best design principles.  I have a lot to learn 
about writing maintainable web app code.

Btw, I hope that graphics offer didn't sound over-eager; I just meant 
I'd be happy to pitch in if there was work to be done that the graphics 
gurus would trust an amateur with.  I just realized the offer was 
especially humorous given my website, which underwent somewhat of a 
stripping down recently when it outgrew its old design.  For something 
less ridiculous, see http://homepage.mac.com/andrewvardeman/geneva, a 
mock-up I did for a job application.

Thanks again and good night,
