  Dear Xu,

  The work you are doing is really very excellent - well done!

  The IPT code is in the Google repository, and contributions are very welcome.  

  I would suggest if you have a developer wishing to contribute, the most effective contributions at this point would be to tackle an issue from the issues list, and then submit a patch to the contributers list (http://groups.google.com/group/gbif-ipt-contributors).  We can show the developers how to create a patch.  Patches would be reviewed and then committed to the project after making any necessary changes.  After a few successful patches, access would be given to the source repository and we could coordinate some development work, or make a branch for specific new functionality.  This is a process typical in open source development and is required to ensure that a common level of understanding and procedures are met across the development team.

  Thank you very much for your interest,

  (GBIF secretariat)

    Dear Sir:
    The Chinese Virtual Herbarium (CVH) is an on-line portal allowing access to herbarium specimen information and other botanical knowledge(online from 2006). CVH is a collaboration among more than 20 major herbaria in China with the aim of creating comprehensive and sustainable access to scholarly resources about China’s plant biodiversity.

    From last year, we have made our new effort to develop a newer and more powerful CVH system. We have taken following computer techniques:
    Ajax: Jquery,XML,json
    Database: Mysql
    Language: PHP, Java
    Data Standards: LSID, Darwin Core, IPTC, 
    GIS: Google Map & Google Earth, GBIF IPT(in the future)

    Beta Homepage of Chinese Virtual Herbarium: http://beta.cvh.org.cn/cms/ ,the current Homepage is : http://www.cvh.org.cn

    You are welcome to make some comments and feedback about our work. And, as we will want to take GBIF IPT in our future work. So we wonder how to (or can we) join the develop group or is the code in Google Code(http://code.google.com/p/gbif-providertoolkit/) the latest code?
