Am I to understand that the new front end will be built in Java? i
would caution against that. That tactic put openoffice.org into a hole,
even until now, Java is not a Free Software API. It can be yanked out
from under you at any time by Sun. In fact, Sun has monkeyed before
with it's API.
Is there a mailing list?

It has been ported to run on GT.M on GNU/Linux -- an entirely free and open platform. We are only a few years old, and at this point, most of the effort has been voluntary. We just (last week) received a large government contract to provide training for VistA Office EHR see: www.linuxmednews.com/1116853791/index_html. Our main communication channel is a list on sourceforge.net: http://lists.sourceforge.net/lists/listinfo/hardhats-members.

If you are experienced with web development, that would be another area where we are short-handed. As far as paying positions -- we have no employees, but there may be consulting/contracting opportunities in conjunction with this new contract or with future grant or contracts which we are trying to get.
