I am pretty open to looking at this as our next mentoring project.  I
do think we need to get a couple tasks done for the the chipy.org site
first.  Also, if we are going to take on an outside project like this
we should probably take a look at a couple and pick one perhaps after
some sort of vote.

Cheers, Brian
