  That's the main goal of Coopx, I think.

  Depends what you'd want it to do, but I guess it can't hurt.  On an
implementation point, though, writing it in PHP might be simpler,
since you could cut and paste from the already written scripts.

  I tend to prefer CORBA over XML-based protocols, but it's probably a
question of personal preference.  Besides, it seems I won't be
involved in implementing things so I have no call there.

  Cool.  If you encounter problems, please do tell us.

  You can import your CVS tree, that's step 1.  Just grab your tarball
and extract it in your appropriate /var/lib/sourceforge/chroot/cvsroot

  As for your bugs, support requests, patches, mailing-lists and other
stuff, I really don't know.  That's the point of Coopx, and Coopx is
still a proposal rather than a software, so I'm afraid I can't help
much there.  Sorry.
