Even better.  Nabil since you're relatively new I hope you won't mind
taking a bit of direction from Mr. Damt's after all he has a bit more
familiarity with the code/process, etc.  If you guys decide to switch
over maintainership every so often, feel free - its upto you given
results are attained and progress is maintained (keep in mind that it
will be your job to recruit and assign work to newbies and volunteers
as they appear).  Here are a few things to start addressing,

 1. State the current state of the project - what to expect on
    the next minor release (make sure to update the sub-project's
    page [1]).
 2. Put forth a priority list of the issues already identified
    (what and when) and what is to be included in the next
 3. Put forth a roadmap of what needs to happen and what issues
    need to be addressed in the long-run (unicode missing glyphs,
    validity of data, other project coloborations, thwab tie-in,
    etc, etc).

Nabil/M.Damt I highly suggest you guys meet on IRC and/or exchanging
private emails to get in sych.  I'll change over the sub-project's
ownership info, etc in the next couple of days.

Thank you all for your interest; now its time to forge ahead with
results !
