It does not seem very > difficult. You've got it exactly. It's not particularly difficult, once you've got the infrastructure for creating and managing grove nodes (e.g., PHyLIS, pygrove, GroveMinder). It's just a simple matter of programming. That is, if you know how to process the data you want to grovify, and you've defined the grove representation of it, implementing the mapping from raw data to grove nodes is not any more difficult than any other similar programming task (e.g., using the DOM API, creating Java objects, creating Python objects, etc.). The hard part will be parsing the mail messages, not creating the node objects in memory. Cheers, E.
