I personally would be very happy to work on both Grouper UI and ESB
integration. I'll ask around at Cardiff to find out how involved the
University would like to be.

That's great news!

I think it'd be a good initial step to make a Cardiff contrib page
following SteveO's guidance and put doc and instructions for obtaining
the code there. Please let me know if you'd like any help or advice
about that.

Your work appears to mesh very well with at least two aspects of the
grouper roadmap. One is getting some variety of simpler UIs into the
package to better enable adopters to support use cases that need
non-technical people in front of a UI. The other is looking for a campus
to partner with to enable notifications to be delivered over an ESB.

Would you be open to the idea of working with us as those items come to
