Yes, most of us know about that.  But there has been no update with a
proposed schedule, project cost, raising funds, soliciting volunteers, etc.

I'm sure the AO40 fund could still use more money, so it's probably not
appropriate to start fund raising for a new project until AO40 has been
fully commissioned.
