Work has begun on making Webscavator more community open-source based, so the code has been put into github and the issues and bugs that need fixing will shortly go in there or some other free bug tracking tool.

Other people including lecturers from Abertay Uni and Cranfield Uni were also interested in using/helping extend it and both said I should do a PhD. Hmmm, a lot of think about!
