Dear Paolo,
 I'm available for a collective subscription or a grant. 
Can you estimate the cost ?

Hi all.
As many of you know, the Home Range QGIS plugin by Anne Ghisla is no longer
working on Windows, due to a problem in the underlying library rpy2. The
problem is probably not going to be fixed soon, and it is likely to show up
IMHO, the most stable solution would be to reimplement the kernel analyses
(do we need other?) in pure python, preferably as a Sextante module. In this
way, the development will be much easier (no interface to be designed), and
the results of this analysis could be easily integrated in more complex
habitat modelling. My provisional estimate is that this can take a very few
days of work. So the question is:
- is anybody interested in solving this?
- in case, is anybody available with the necessary Python skills (or willing
to learn it)?
- if nobody is available, we can do it, provides some funding can be
secured, perhaps as a collective subscription or as a grant.
All the best.
