I think that I should write some documentation about how to setup and run

Anyway, it's great that you gave it a try, event though there is still
quite a long way to go.
I suggest you apply for membership of the project at gna.org so you
can add and maintain the branch yourself! (If everyone agrees,
BTW, have you decided on a widget toolkit to use, or are you writing
the gui from scratch?
The GUI widget toolkit is implemented in HTML at the moment. That means
that the graphics are rendered with the HTML canvas element, while all the
GUI elements are limited to what one can do with HTML.
I'm not sure if there are any widget toolkits which could be used in a
browser. It is possible to create a Java applet or a Flash plugin to
create a user interface, but I've not looked into that (yet).
BTW2, I'd like to write a 'news story' for the website. Something in

Perhaps that it would be great if more testers and developers gave the
web client a try.
Even better, if someone would be kind enough to provide server hosting
for the web client. Such a server needs a lot of bandwidth and CPU/memory.
