Long time no visit!
Just checked out: http://squirrelmail.org/wiki/CurrentTemplateStatus
It indicates that no new template objectives have been added since
02/2007. A good sign yes?
Where are we on this now? Do we have a web services layer / API in

No objectives have been (fully) satisfied, either.

The template cleanup is still looming, although from time to time I
commit a couple fixes. The RPC interface foundations have been laid
for quite a time now, and recently I changed them to use SOAP to
standardize how it will be used. However, in order for any
substantial amount of functionality to be added to that API, the SM
core needs some serious work (although in some cases, it will be
possible to kludge it for the time being).
We don't have a lot of energy going into this lately. I'd like to see
that change, but real life/paid work seems to get in the way for many
of us. My feeling over the last year is that one way to reinvigorate
SM development would be to finally (we've talked about it for years)
start accepting donations (specific bounties will probably help too,
although I'd hesitate to put a price tag on the huge amount of work of
getting the template system finished). Alternatively, anyone not
already on the SM team who feels motivated to dive into some of this
should contact the team and propose to help!
