I'm going to step in with a bit of charity at this point. Siesta has a
working piece of software which is downloadable and installable. This
mailing list is run on it.

That's a hell of a lot more progress than most "half-dead sourceforge
projects" ever seem to make. people are unfortunately generally hard-working folk with
demanding jobs, who all also seem to have a compulsion to be hacking
on 10 different projects at any given time. This means that striding
developments in any single direction can take a while to make.

Encourage people to come take a look and start hacking. The code is
nice and clean, so adding features shouldn't be hard. And maybe siesta
will pick up some developers who are just working on siesta, rather
than trying to re-code the entire fricking universe :)

Yes, sorry. I really am very interested in doing the web-based
interface, but work has been an absolute mare for the past 3 weeks,
and I've also got lots of little other things that I'm supposed to be
coding or organising right now (hmm. this state of affairs sounds
eerily familiar).

My decks are slowly getting tidied and cleared. If no-one else wants
to run with the web interface (and I've heard much reluctant
grumbling), then realistically I'll start it happening in about 2 weeks.

There's stuff above here
