There will be lots to do!  I'm just hoping to get a prototype working
well enough that folks have a sense of the "picture I'm trying to paint."

I'm cutting quite a few corners and we will need folks to take on
maintainership of packages and do them over cleanly.  I'm certainly hopeful
that you will take Apache, PHP, the many of the web apps (if not more).
