HI floris v...

and mostly ditto on Dave's comments. We have NO intention of trying to 
recreate kenai. The problem at the moment is no one, and I do think I 
mean pretty much no one (well Andrew says he has access to "the machine" 
but can he can fix the Oracle branding?), is even minding the 
(now .com) store. That is, this site/project, was also abandoned by 
Oracle just about the time it gave over OpenOffice to Apache. Go to

to read what's there.

What this essentially means is there's a machine up complete with a 
bunch of old kenai projects on it ( being one) and no 
kenai master at hand.

Our best best, IMHO, is to just get the DNS (name transfer to Apache) 
done as quickly as possible; do whatever we need to to get a skeleton 
site up (Dave and I, but mostly Dave have been working toward this for a 
bit); fix the DNS records to point to the new "actual 
Apache machine", and get on with it.

Bottom line. We will NOT be using kenai templates, (and yes, we've 
already got the relevant page "guts" if you will,) and we don't care 
about them *now* except for all the Oracle branding that's there and we 
can't fix. Andrew might be able to figure this out...I don't know.
