This may unwittingly mislead readers.

The QED web site is still live, and I would have thought worth
a visit by anyone interested in starting related projects.
(possibly an object lesson in how not to organise a project!)

True enough the project seems now to be moribund, but
I think the mailing list is operational, and might be
a better place to discuss new initiatives in this direction
than FOM.
