Hi Alex,

Thanks for passing on the invitation.  I'd love to join the discussion
in person, but my lack of German is a barrier.

I put the docs through google translate.  Purpose-wise it looks like
the tool is aimed at supporting discussion.  So it would be similar to
Votorola in that regard.  Maybe the biggest difference is they don't
see the support coming from the voting structure mainly, but from some
kind of formalized argumentation.

They're looking at an open component architecture, so I guess it would
be more-or-less comparable to Outcast.  But Outcast is a network
architecture composed of facilities spread across the Internet, where
each user is free to compose his/her own personal solution from
competing providers.  Maybe they're looking at something different.

I'm now on the LiquidFeedback list, which is in English.  But I don't
know if they discuss Meinungsfindungstool there.
