Hi Timetabling Folks!

I thought about it a long time ago, but now I want to discuss it with
What do you think about a 'framework' for timetabling?
Don't you think we - thev (ex) leaders or members of different open source
timetabling programs - should bale our forces?
We all now know the pro's and con's of our programs and algorithm's, but
none of them is perfect, right!?
If we would do it together the project will start small, but get a rich
set of developers and hopefully a big(ger) community as every project

If you answer with 1. - sorry for the spam!!

Could you please forward this email to persons that could be interested in
this discussion, too? E.g. project members

Thank you,
Peter Karich.
