I can't tell you how happy I was when checking the mail today. A package from Australia arrived containing Sidgwick's Greek Prose Composition Key and North and Hillard's Latin Prose Composition Key - both public domain copies. They were photocopied and sent in by a VERY kind Textkit visitor.
It goes without saying that I'll get these scanned and cleaned right away.
I also received via email today a scanned PDF of Virgil!! It's one of those nice Elementary Classics editions with line notes and vocabulary.
I would like to thank everyone who has sent in material in the past and helped out on Textkit in other ways. Our next newsletter edition will feature the efforts of all the volunteers.
I'm so happy to see that Textkit is very much becoming a group effort. I have always held the notion that if I can initially work hard enough on this project, then others will join me.
Today's package, along with everyone else's help and time, is proof that this is working.

Yeah, I think that's the best approach for doing such things on the internet. It's certainly what happens with Open-source software, from my point of view.
As an aside I'm hoping that this approach will work for me when my workout software is released.
