I've yet to hear anything substantive since the original 12/2 email I 
sent on the topic.  In the interest of time I'm going to move on but it 
is worth noting one thing.  The GL2 progress has been embarassingly 
slow.  I take full accountablity for this.  This latest effort to move 
forward on the codebase will be my last. ..if things stagnate again I 
will formally put my GL coding days behind me and leave the entire long 
term vision of GL to Dirk.  To help keep things moving I am hoping to 
delegate as much work as possible to those with more time...however you 
might note that quality help is a rare commodity.  The progress that can 
be made is directly tied the help I cant count on.  I've had a number of 
nibbles from people willing to help but none of them panned out, nearly 
all sighting time commitments.  So to expand on what I have already 
said, unless I can get other developers to devote some amount of time to 
GL2 I will need to officially kill the notion of GL2.  To that end I am 
setting a Februrary 1st deadline for myself and any that choose to help 
on producing the complete GL2 framework code so that plugin development 
can begin.  Anything short of that I will view as failure.

I've cc'd the users mailing list in the hopes that some on that list 
might consider contributing to GL2. 

My apologies if this all sounded a bit dramatic...I simply wanted to, 
one last time, assert my hopes to get the project moving and my 
willingness to step aside for the lack of progress.
