I'd certainly help. Although - given my addiction to frequent kayaking

another. Unless you are planning to implement a release workflow so
that new additions can be checked as time permits.

cheap permanent internet connection.

extensive editing. I'd not be happy to have to do that online.

I think we need to think some more about this ...
