Have you seen the below projects they have similar aims but with
different approaches. I would really appreciate some help with the
projects because the developer kind of stopped coding according to the
activities logs. I also have commit access to both svn's but am lacking
time to program on it)

(somebody that can do the programming would be really great!)

(this is in full continuing development)

ps. is very slow with the release and all so be patient when
loading the webpage.

Best regards,
