I have a need for something like this coming up and have been
passively looking at PhotArk.  I'd suggest that a project like this
would do itself good by having a simple architecture diagram[1], some
good screenshots[2], and an ounce of documentation[3].  Otherwise,
it's tough for someone poking around to determine exactly *what* it is
and, thus, there's not enough [on the website] to get excited about
right now.  I know, it's a small team now and sort of a catch-22.  The
blogging is good, btw, it's what reminded me of you:)   Oddly enough,
I suspect these things would be more likely to generate developer
interest than a release would.  Anyway, just an opinion...
