Hi Erik.

I'm the project coordinator for "Piper", but not your Piper :-)  We noticed
your announcement on Freshmeat of about a week ago, and it appears that we
have chosen the same name.  Our Piper is a merger between several GNU-licensed
projects, and our goal is to build a peer-to-peer distributed workflow system,
bringing features (e.g., piping) of the GNU/UNIX command-line interface (CLI)
to the graphical user interface (GUI) and Internet-distributed computing. 
Here is our website:


We're not about to sue anyone, because we too are a Free Software project :-) 
But, for the sake of not confusing users, we should do something about it. 
Our Piper started early spring of 2000, and we have 4 primary developers and
60+ people on the main mailing list.
