This didn't go through when I sent it, so I'm trying again now. (if mailman
blocks me out again...bleh...)

Sorry I'm late to the conversation (I've been away), but I would be
interested in volunteering in the extra time that I sometimes have. I might
not have too much time (at least an hour a week, though). I can help
moderate the mailing list if you still need help with that, or help with
other stuff (I have a bit of php experience, and a bit more web development
experience...but a lot of people here can probably also say that).

Also, Arturo (and everyone else): I'm not sure if I'm just boring everyone
by bringing this up again (or if this might be helpful to you), but I found
out a few things about the FCKeditor problem a few months ago:

   - Doug was having the same troubles, but he fixed it:
   - In the initial Drupal "roll out" (
   https://www.mozdev.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=17703#c2), before Doug fixed
   that bug, the Apache mod_rewrite stuff pertaining to Drupal (see link)
   didn't serve xml files (like the one FCKeditor needs and can't find)
   statically with all the other static files like it should have, but
   redirected them to Drupal (which is what it is doing now - and Drupal thinks
   that it is a Drupal page, can't find it in its DB, and serves up a 404).
   - As far as I can remember, we've been having this problem ever since
   Mozdev began locking down PHP usage and only allowing it for approved
   projects. I'm not sure if someone was messing with the mod_rewrite stuff,
   and that caused this, or if it's something totally different.
