Subject: Re: [CODE4LIB] code4lib/conf4lib mobile app prototype and a call for help
Thanks, Mark. I'll add you to the list of interested people!
Everyone else - I'm getting responses from interested developers and am
happy. I'd also like to find designers, project managers, testers, and
anyone who can produce a specification for what we should be building.
