I have made WebNews work with mod_perl. To the extreme credit of the authors of mod_perl, it didn't take any modifications to WebNews. I added my notes to the WebNews documentation. I created an entry for WebNews on Freshmeat.
A couple more features have squeaked by into vmips, and I am building up a build status page. vmips is now essentially code-complete for its 1.0 release; I will probably not add anything more, but I will quite possibly take things out. I'm not quite ready to branch yet.
I GPLed one of my research codes (vsimII), but I have yet to think of why this would help, because it depends on non-free software. Hopefully I will have an opportunity to GPL other more self-contained codes in the future. I wish academics were granted more freedom to do as they pleased with their intellectual property (sounds silly, doesn't it?) not to mention with their minds in general.
My XML-based procmailrc generator has evolved to a point where it might prove useful, but it still languishes in limbo due to other coworkers' projects that have yet to see the light of day.
