Poco a poco, as the Italians say ;) That's awesome -- thanks for the effort :) I forgot to say earlier: if it ever starts to feel boring, please feel free to switch to something else at any time. This is all volunteer work so no-one should feel forced to do anything unless they have accepted a commitment. Personally, I've been working on this scraping and aggregation out of a sense of duty more than anything else. The thought of Lisp and Scheme languishing in obscurity is a bit painful. The work can also be fun at times, and you invariably see things in a new way when you generate a summary of a big mass of data (for example I didn't really have a good picture of the Scheme library situation before we did packhack, and there are lots of good libraries I had no idea existed), but the details can be somewhat thankless work :) But as more and more things are aggregated it looks like it's all worth it in the end.
