Hi Ben,

Thanks for your message, and the link to your collection -- it looks great!
We are always pleased to hear about people successfully using Greenstone to
build nice collections.

I have added your site to the examples page
( I have trimmed
the last two sentences from your description to reduce its size a bit --
please let me know if you think I've done an injustice to your collection!

We hope Greenstone didn't give you too many headaches, and thanks very much
for your contributions to ImagePlug and other areas of Greenstone.

All the best,

On behalf of the Greenstone team
