[curtis@npc-usa.com: Re: Integrating creating users through WebMin]

Hi DD list,
Someone on D-U has a custom-made? RH Webmin modules. He now wants to use
this on Debian. I asked him if he'd like to open source it. He said ok. 
So, how does one get a DD to be interested in starting a webmin module 
project based on code that is RH specific?

I have no problem with that, but I have no idea what I should even do 
to even that ball rolling.
Any suggestions?
