Subject: Re: [agdp] AGDP Wish List
This is a cool idea, and I wonder what list it would be appropriate to
migrate the discussion to. ag-tech perhaps? I'm not sure if there's any
current mechanism for AG software wish list, but if there is I'm sure
somebody on this list can point us to it (although given that resources
are already being made available maybe it's not a wish list item?).
