Hi all,

>Haven't seen much action on the list lately, just wondering where we're at?

Couldn't find the time to finish BeOS API stuff but I am still dedicated to my 
deadline (end of 
this week), although I know I probably won't make it ^_^ I've been running out 
of time because 
of job searching for nearly three months now but good news is I finally will 
start on a new job in 
one week. So expect me to become more active then ^_^
It looks like I'm waiting too long before sending reminders to inactive 
contributors so I believe I 
should send a weekly reminder to those persons from now on ^_^

Would love to know what information you collected so far because as soon as I 
have finished 
the BeOS API stuff I'd love to jump in on this part.

As far as I'm concerned my code is not ready yet. As soon as there's something 
usable you'll be 
my first alpha-testers ^_^. There shouldn't be much to test except for those of 
you who have 
BONE, as the libnetapi works with R5 but not with BONE (listening sockets don't

Just the same for me ^_^

ok :o)
Well, I'm glad to see Erik post to this list (at long last). Please don't 
forget the list is open to 
suggestions and I'd like to hear from all the "newcomers". Didn't get a single 
answer from the 
"newcomers" to this thread. Writing emails steals a lot of time away from 
coding, but those who 
are not coding yet have no excuse for not answering :o)

Francesco, Robson, can we finally get some news from you?
Zenja, can you please give us an update as far as the "dummy C program files" 
are concerned?
