Matt is suggesting someone else may soon register
and use it for purposes we won't like.

I think having the gnuherds webapp 'federate' with other sites (like
xmpp/jabber or gnutella federates in a p2p network) would allow to be a job site for jobs on gnu project software, while would be like but with the charter and
association and so on - which  I think is important to develop since
there are many free software developers who are not GNU developers -
and I will probably set up for font-specific

It would be great if was federated with all of those
to provide a 'single listing' of all the free software jobs out there.

This kind of federated/p2p webapp system is the solution I see to the
ASP problem not yet dealt with in any affero webapp, where the power
and convenience of webapps isn't just in their access-from-anywhere
architecture but also their 'network effects' of aggregated users and
data. A free replacement for flickr is in plugins for gallery2 and its
ilk that federate personal photopublishing silos.

I hope the upcoming Affero summit will consider this, though sadly
theres no room for me to attend.
