Documenting GEF and Refactorit

Message I sent the message copied below last Friday offering to work on updating the
documentation of GEF. As of yet I haven't gotten a response.
That message was a followup of a message that I originally sent to
argouml-dev.

Perhaps the owners of GEF are taking a well deserved vacation. :-)

My problem is that I would like to start working ASAP, but I want to use
RefactorIT on GEF since I have found it an extremely useful tool for
analyzing code. Note that I am also to cheap to shell out the $200 for
a commercial license. ;-)

I am cross posting this message to argouml-dev for thee reasons.

1) What I am proposing to do would benefit ArgoUML developers.

2) Other ArgoUML developers would benefit from being able to use
RefactorIT to understand GEF.

3) Maybe somebody on the argouml-dev list has some insight into
   who is currently the "active" owner of GEF.

I am offering to help by initiating the discussions with RefactorIT,
but I can only do this with the consent of the owners of GEF.


thanks in advance,

roy
