I've been awfully short on project time, but I remain really interested in
seeing open source mechanical CAD become a practical reality.  I've
mentally earmarked future (hoped for) less busy time for working on this,
so I'd like to at least keep apprised of what's going on with these efforts
in the meanwhile.  I could probably make Fab night this Thursday; would
this be a good time for getting back into freecad?
