So you already have an active community of users and contributors?
Any public record of that? Names and/or numbers?

Names or numbers on "the team"? Public records of the growing?
The CVS mails show no relevant activity before October 2007,
nor afterwards.

The only account used on the project site is "wwwfswcom",
an obvious reference to a website that seems to belong to
a software consulting company.
Can you give some details on "distributed across the world"?
Number of people by country or continent, for example?

Is the above mentioned software consulting company aware of
the fact that a diverse team of volunteers is indirectly
referencing its website when releasing open source software?

So which forums and/or mailing lists do you use?
As far as I can see you didn't use the CVS repo either,
except for index.html and one drop of code in October 2007.
