Well Nick B, With no propsals, our 'work' has been helping people understand
how to MAKE one.

Ozz had a lot of problems with no modern guides. Modern developers aren't
passing new guides to those who can follow suit. We have 'pipeline
development' now. Modern tech tells us that is a dead end eventually.

Some of us are helping developers with how to get the 'word out' and then we
see what works.

I'd really hope Stas will help at least with some tech to smartphones IOS if I
got right. I'd like to see somthing from the Mystic developer and to see SBBS
actually submit suggested implementation proposals would be excellent.
Technically SBBS is open source but that doesnt mean others know the basics to
find it.

So, any better ideas? With no repository on 'how-to' we leave all developers
hanging and we die. It doesnt MATTER if it is a proposal or raised to a
standard just now. It needs to be where they can find it.
