Hi Bernhard,

This is great - I can see a lot of potential in having Wookie working  
well in Elgg, and I've been acutely aware of just how out of date the  
work I started had become, and so I'm very grateful that you've taken  
this on.

In terms of hosting, Elgg requires that plugins are licensed using  
GPL, which means they can't be hosted at ASF. However, if you were to  
submit the plugin to the Elgg extensions project (see 
  then we can link to it there from the Wookie site so that people can  
find it. (I'm sure Hugh will want to test it, and I'd love to give it  
a try too).

I think it would also be good to have the plugin as part of the Elgg  
community so that developers there are able to identify any Elgg- 
specific issues or enhancements.
