[App_rpt-users] Stepping on toes...

Well,
I guess I'm old school, or just old. mail lists give me easy access to 
information. I don't need multiple programs open. I get it on my phone, 
tablet and multiple desktops. I've seen forum attempts in the past that 
have failed.

ASL is Open Source.  The way OS software evolves is when someone 
identifies a need and takes the initiative to act upon that need.  I 
applaud you for seeing this need, now are you ready for the next step?  
Can you define the problem?  The proposed solution in detail?  The steps 
needed to get there?  How it will be tested? This is a great idea, now 
run with it.
