I think that I will soon be ready to tackle this task.

a.sl.o is pretty stable and will soon become a vital part of the SL
infrastructure.  Once it becomes useful it should be much easier to
find someone to adopt it:

It will be an easy but tedious process.  It is easy to set up a couple

of the ambiguity of the mediawiki grammar a person must check to make
sure that all of the changes are sane.
