> Hey Everyone!!!
> We, here at the "BASE Development Center" have taken a vacation for
> about a month, and are now ready to move forward, onward, and upward.
> 1st -> I would like to personally thank everyone for being part of
> this project, from developers to end-users. We've been mentioned in
> several books and magazines, many interviews, even more articles, and
> a countless number of websites. (Just Google "BASE" or it's full
> name, you'll see) With over 16 THOUSAND downloads (and that's not
> counting people that have downloaded it from third party websites), we
> must be doing something right!! We have an official debian port, and
> an official BSD port now as well!!
> Even Marty Roesch has told everyone using ACID should switch to BASE!!
> Thanks Marty!
> 2nd -> We are going to release 1.1.3 soon. Would like to get this
> release out the door by June 15th, this release is mainly going to be
> bug fixes, no really big new functionality, we're saving that... See
> I think we should also extend special thanks to Alejandro for getting
> PEAR Graphing up and doing away with "jpgraph". Thanks Alejandro!
> 3rd -> We are going to keep that optempo (Operational Tempo) going
> with 1.2. We want to finalize the role-basing system, to be able to
> assign groups, users, and sensors to certain people and vice-versa.
> Securing the interface basically. That's going to take a good two
> months to get done and finalized.
> 4th -> Kevin and I would like to call a meeting. Of all members of
> the developers team as well as all members of these mailing lists. I
> would like to schedule it for ONE WEEK FROM TODAY, JUNE 1st 2005. The
> meeting will take place on IRC, freenode.net in the #secureideas room
> at approximately 1900 EST (7 PM). Please be there, we'd like to iron
> out what our goals are for the project and see if we can't get some
> more people interested in working on development.
> Also like to have a big fat brain storm with all the experts of the
> community. I'd love to have people like Marty and Matt Wachinski
> there, if we could coax them out of their traveling schedules!!
> If you don't know how to sign onto IRC, which, some people don't, it's
> okay.. take a look into XChat (many platforms, including mac os x...
> this is what I use) or for you Windows people, mIRC. I don't care if
> you write your own IRC client, please be there.
> 5th -> If you haven't gleaned from the above, #secureideas on
> irc.freenode.net is the official BASE channel. We're using it mainly
> for discussion of development right now, but please feel free to sit
> and idle. :) We're going to be doing alot of public things in the
> 6th -> If anyone is on this list, and is interested in becoming a
> member of the development team for BASE, please contact us @
> base@... , we'd like to get a few more developers in on
> this project to make sure we can be as productive as can be.
> 7th -> We ask that if you are going to have BASE in a book, or
> article, or what-have-you. Please let us know, again at
> base@..., we'd love to read the articles and books.
> Thank you all for your support, if you have any questions, please
> email us at base@... , I will be away from email until
> next week. (traveling.. vacation)
