Hi guys, new PHP coder

Hi everyone,

Before we get into the coding of the license wizard/guide, I'm swapping 
myself out for Mike Williams, one of my trusted guys.

He's into PHP (wrote a book on it), Python (wrote a book on that too), 
Debian, and many other bits and pieces.

He'll be doing the actually coding, and I'll be waving from the 
sidelines. :)

Mike, I've forwarded you about 58 or 59 emails, being the relevant 
conversation on list and off list.  It should give you enough background 
to get a feel for what's needed.

Alex has an idea/approach for using weightings in the license guide that 
sounds practical, so you should go with his approach unless it turns out 
to not be workable after all.

In the later emails (forwarded) he's given decent amounts of lower level 
detail, and in the last few emails he's included an example weighting 
file from memory.

If you have any questions, these guys are quite open and friendly to 
being asked, and you know you can always ask me stuff too.

We still need to work out with Brian Behlendorf <brian at collab.net> a 
test server for the site, and personally I feel it's a good idea to get 
that sorted out early on, to avoid future hassles.


Regards and best wishes,
