I can't think of a better group than SAS to participate in this application. If you have an interest in software development or even just ideas to guide it's development to avoid obvious, to you, problems you may want to check it out. They clearly want "end user" input.

*cringe* Java Swing, what a lovely API.

So far it looks like the application is still in the planning / prep stages. Do you know the project lead by any chance, or did you just stumble upon the page?

(this is interesting)

well, "stumble" is not the term I woud use. Call it a reconnaissance benefit. I periodically check out SourceForge for free games or rewrites of old commercial games (often improved) or clever software. I don't know the project lead but I'm sure he's listed at that link with contact info.

I sure would love to see a multiple channel voice comm system for ingame. Your team can die while you are typing in 3 alphanumeric entries....
