I'd suggest you post your entire proposal on this mailing list before
applying, That'll allow for you to take on board other peoples suggestions
as well as a learning experience of what else is out there and available
I know there are a lot of people wanting a improved role system, and i'm
aware of 2 (possibly 3) people who'll write something soon if nothing
comes to fruition..
In the past, i believe posting here was one of the prerequisites, just to
ensure that your final application is as good as it can be.
