I've a question about the status of Omega, the version of TeX

How do the experienced TeXperts on this list find Omega?
There is a revived development effort going on for Omega now. John
Plaice and Yannis Haralambous who were the originators of the Omega
system have now agreed to open the system to other volunteers who
are ready to contribute to it. John Plaice wrote in the Omega list
on Oct 29, 2001:
The new Web page for Omega is coming online. It can be found at
http://omega.cse.unsw.edu.au:8080 and includes links to just about
all of the articles ever written on Omega. A lot of new stuff will
be added to this page in the weeks to come.
Comments would be welcome.
However, the support for Indic scripts is rudimentary or rather near
nil. John is coming to India during late this year or early next
year for integrating Indic scripts to Omega. He will be in India at
least for a month. Mahatma Gandhi International Univ for Hindi, New
Delhi will fund his travel (many thanks to the efforts of Amitabh
Trehan for making available the funds) and TUGIndia together with
the University will coordinate John's programs in India.
More news will be in the list when John arrives.
