I'm really happy to see how PyBossa is growing!!! :-)
About adding this feature to PyBossa: I totally agree! I'll be at
OKFestival, so if more people from this list are coming and you want to
participate, we can work together about this feature in Finland. In any
case, I'll be implementing this really soon!
