There's life :-).  However, the recent complications involving OASIS memberships are making life... er... complicated :-(.

I'm currently working through the processes so that I stay an OASIS member, which involves much legal fun.  As you can see, Andreas Guelzow has already re-joined as an individual member (thanks!!).

Rob Weir is working on getting someone to do that; we've had several conversations on what's involved.

There are two parts: hiding the test cases, and then fixing the text.  Thankfully, much of the text isn't as bad as I initially feared; our process of creating test cases also forced us to think about exactly what the text should say.

I will soon post a start to hiding the text.  Rob is trying to find someone to finish the text-hiding (it's not technical work), which would help (so we only have to concentrate on what needs changing).

Great!  Thanks.
