I believe the original purpose of the roll call was to identify 
currently active software authors that might be interested in the 
discussions coming up about adding additional symbol overlay 
definitions.  I'm accumulating the information so that folks will have a 
reference point for who is the author of various software if questions 
arise about that software.

For this purpose, libraries and/or servers seem to be reasonable to 
include as questions about those various APRS system components may 
arise from time to time.

I'll add these to the list, but of course they'll be footnoted as having 
not having checked in here as ongoing discussions are likely to occur in 
this group/mail reflector.
