I'd be concerned that nothing appears to have been done with OpenTrac in 
almost 20 years. Technology moves a lot faster than that. Pretty much 
everything that OpenTrac originally addressed has long since been 
incorporated into modern APRS clients and protocols.

I'd be interested to see what applications currently are supporting 20 
year old software.
