So, I may be a bit confused, but this doesn't look like it's open source
software. Are you using open source software to create a proprietary
library automation system? (Not that this is wrong, difficult perhaps
depending on licenses, but not wrong.) If so, then I think that posting
an announcement here is probably a bit out of place.
If I'm wrong, and you are releasing an open source system, I apologize.
