Re: [CVE-OFFTOPIC?] NIST funding

Applications for funding are due (according to an article I just read this
morning) by 21 June 2001, so limited time to apply.

(I can see many ways in which members of the CVE editorial group might
be interested in this.  Perhaps joint research into how a good
concordance/dictionary can be of use in CIP; what features of CVE have
worked well, and what would be worth improving; funding for the CVE or
CIEL, etc.)
