I don't know if Steve's offer of his wife's services was for "free" or
not, but Frank's suggestion of donations for a lawyer to look into this
was a good one.
I have been following this project since it started - I think it is a
*very* important part of our community, and should proceed. I, too,
would exercize caution in moving this to another individual. Please,
don't do anything rash. I understand that home and work life might be
getting in the way of this project, but for now, just let it sit.
I would be willing to donate (via paypal or whatever) for hiring a
lawyer. I would also be willing to donate to help pay for storage and/or
safety (for instance, storage of the project in a safety deposit box). I
think this project is that important.
Let's work on this - I am sure we can get this rolling again.
