Thank you for the message, Ralph.    (01)

[ppy] Absolutely, Ralph, as long as it is good work, relevant to 
our charter (ref: 
http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?WikiHomePage#nidB) and 
that your technology is open (ref: 
http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?WikiHomePage#nid32).    (03)

... I have no doubt about your meeting the first two criteria. 
You'll have to tell me about the third (in essence, are your 
tools open source?) ... With your confirmation on meeting that 
3rd criterion, we can work with you or Holger to set up a date.    (04)

We'll be thrilled to see you and your colleagues get more 
involved in this (Ontolog) community.    (05)

Cheers.  =ppy
