Thanks! So far, I have not yet introduced myself as a member of the Open 
Transport Working Group yet (since I considered it to be unauthorized 
assumption of authority ^^), but I spoke about Open Transport at 
Friedrichshafen's Open Data Barcamp some weeks ago 
<http://www.ioexception.de/2012/11/10/opendata-friedrichshafen/> and, of 
course, at the OpenCityCamp 2012 in Ulm.

I am currently very interested in whether there is any coordinated 
effort to bring out FLOSS tools helping transit agencies to automate 
their GTFS export capabilities as much as possible. I am currently 
looking into this and am willing to shun my former plans for my diploma 
thesis in order to pursue this goal (scientifically).

I'd love to do that!
