I just posted news on OpenPacket.org at the OpenPacket Blog. I made an initial announcement about OpenPacket last year. In short, this project is going nowhere unless I get some help with development or financing, due to my lack of Web development skill and time. I appreciate any comments you might post on the OpenPacket Blog.
Update: Please visit the OpenPacket Blog for fresh updates. I created devel and users mailing lists, and two people have already volunteered development help. Wow!
