Moving in thoroughly new idea areas here Richard and teminology is evolving

We agree basic building engineering information is open source, but where 
can we download world creative-commons green house plans? So, i say again, 
a gov/uni led open-source creative-commons 'plan-developers' net community,
logically super green, might seem a Nobel level world's future initiative. 

We'll work out world IP issues, but I don't think the environment can wait

Cheers Richard
