We talked about this at the umce.linux meeting and decided that we
weren't sure exactly what was being asked of us.  Since there were only
5 of us there wasn't exactly a large pool of available "volunteers" in
any case.  But I expect we can select an interested and enthused
volunteer right here in e-mail once we have an idea what is expected of us.

So, what kind of commitment exactly are we looking at here --
weekly meetings?  Occasional e-mail responses?  What all exactly is
this group doing?  I hadn't actually read the RFP until after the
meeting.  It left me with even more questions though -- The RFP looks
like kind of a catch-all -- which parts would this group be
operating/deploying, and which parts would be run by other groups --
and how are efforts being coordinated with those groups?  How does
funding work for all this?  Has any consideration been given to
open-source solutions for those parts where it's practical?  Is there
any particular reason not to select Andrew Mortensen or Patrick
