Anytime these projects need help with docs, cleanup, or just plain grunt
work let me know!

The "Users in the System" and the "Add a new user" should be tabbed.

A good example of a document management system is a Sourceforge project
called Owl Intranet Knowledgebase - it tracks changes, performs check-in/out
of documents, maintains user-level access, etc.

My experience with Jonah:  that it won't fetch articles if the Horde server
sits on an internal LAN isolated from the internet by a firewall.  Most
installer software ie. Netscape, Ximian, etc. can be configured to become
proxy aware if the user is sitting behind a firewall.   It would be nice if
the Horde configuration included the ability to run the Horde server from
behind a firewall/proxy.
