[Darkroom] Darkroom status update?

Seems like labor is the biggest shortage lately. Money was certainly coming
in at a close second, but having Rubin as non-corporeal check signer
alleviates that. Perhaps it's time to rely on the tried and true services
for funds paradigm? I think that it would be nice to find someone from
within the ranks who will work for really cheap--though not for free. The
nice thing about paying people is that then you can tell them when to get
things done. It seems like amongst ourselves, it might be a while until our
aggregated free time results in a completed darkroom. So maybe we post
first to discuss?
If I get a second from a non-Rubin person who will help me coordinate this
shite, I'll start shopping around. (ahem, Ben?)
