The original message was not quite on-topic for this list, which after
all is primarily for the discussion of Koha, and I second MJ's
recommendation of CODE4LIB.  I also recommend submitting such news to
http://www.oss4lib.org/.  That said, I don't mind if occasional
announcements of major milestones in other F/OSS ILS projects are
posted here.

I agree that cooperation with other F/OSS library software projects,
including ILSs, is a good thing, but I don't think we should be driven
by a fear of reinventing wheels.  Different projects have different
emphases and there isn't a global consensus on how to build the One
True ILS.  What we should strive for is avoiding *unnecessary*
