Re: [tools-pmc] Newsreader project

Hi Mik,

I don't think that Mylyn would be a good home for this project.
Forcing nntp into mylyn would be a little far fetched for a couple of
reasons. First because then people would first have to setup Mylyn
before they could read and post news and secondly although Mylyn and
nntp could work together because of more or less the same document
structure (main topic and replies), not all articles are tasks and I
have doubts if this would work (could be a nice experiment though).

I also have doubts that this project would be an ECF subproject but I
could be wrong. I am interrestd wat mr Lewis thinks about this.

Best regards,


Here is a link to a small movie and a screenshot of the software
