This is absolutely great!

Yes indeed, do you have a CVS you prefer?  We have stuff on both github
and launchpad.

Yes!!!  I would really like to have help fixing/ improving our programs.
In particular I would like to make fladduser use all system calls.
I had been trying to study and learn what all libraries control
it had been a front for running existing programs using a system() call,
which is not what I wanted, but
the only way I knew to quickly build a small user adding/management program.

You will need fluid to work on the project, it has FLTK ui (all our GUI
programs use is, very small, fast light)

There are other programs too, if you are really interested!

Agreed!  I keep an eye out for similar things as well.
