Maybe a wiki page of some sort laying out the goals for any upcoming GShell release where people can tag their name next to areas their tooling around in. It'd by no means be some sort of gold rush claim to parts of gshell. It would just let people know what areas they might need to tread softly in, for fear of mucking up someone's work. It would also help to draw light to what areas of gshell are getting ignored. Those sad, lonely little areas.
Cool! A few comments though...
Right now aliases are defined in layout.xml, I'd like to not have morew config for this. What is the point of execute-alias?
The rsh bits are still on the experimental side and subject to change. I think we'd be better off lea?ing them for 2.2 integration, which was what I had intended.
But overall... Cool beans that other folks are starting to help with GShell!!! Perhaps we need a little more discussion on who is doing what for now and the next release?

I will soon add gshell-remote-client/common/server, gshell-whisper
and mina dependencies so that we can remote control servers. In other
words, it will increase a little bit more.
This may still change, however here is a list of the new commands:
* alias: to create an alias;
* unalias: to remove an alias;
* execute-alias: to execute an alias;
* remote/rsh: rsh client;
* remote-rsh-server: rsh server;
* remote-control/server-control: to execute a control operation start/
stop, for a remote server. This command rsh to a gshell instance
where the server is to be started or stopped and execute the proper
Aliases will be stored in etc/aliases.xml and users will be able to
alter that if they want via CLI option. remote-control/server-control
uses a hierarchical tree to defined hosts along with how to remote
login to a gshell running on this instance and commands to control
