It is up to you to decide where you want your efforts to be host it. I
am happy to present it in a sf.net project, but there is little more
that I can do. Do you want to pursue these efforts further, or do you
want to make them available to others who might be interested? I am
afraid that is always a difficult proposition without active
recruitment.

I see in the tar file two parts: java code and data. Would it be
useful to indicate which parts of the code belong to each of the above
items?

This would not exclude making it available on a public web page?

Regarding your items to chew on, would you want these to be part of a
web page for this code?
