Dan's contributions so far have been substantial, and we fully expect 
them to continue.  Dan Higgins' Kepler activities to date include:

1) Created  a Kepler installer for the Kepler website (using 
InstallAnywhere) (which included a relative path batch file for starting 
2) Discovered several problems in the Mac OS X version of the Ptolemy 
4.0 Beta code that kept the Mac version from properly working. Provided 
Mac testing for Steve Neuendorffer and Chris Brooks in support of fixes 
to make Ptolemy Beta4 work properly for the Mac OSX. [Fixes for right 
click functionality, mapping of <cntr> to <command> key, etc.]
3) Modified ant build file for Ptolemy 3 to work for Ptolemy 4Beta
4) Created several example workflows for sampling using existing Ptolemy 
5) Currently working on creating an 'R' actor for use in Kepler. 
[Current work based on command line/exec actors to launch 'R']
