I have an intent to patch an AfterTheDeadline server solution, either independently or with my students, depending on what they determine is next for them.
AfterTheDeadline clients, for OpenOffice, for example, check grammar, style, spelling. It's a much more comprehensive tool than Microsoft offers. (Incidentally, I usually instruct students to turn grammar checking off in MS products because the efficacy just isn't there; with AfterTheDeadline, my tests suggest the result are really quite helpful.)
AfterTheDeadline uses an open server on the web by default; however, it may be configured to use a local server. Custom rules can be created to accommodated the style guidelines of a particular organization. Clients for other application can be created with the help of very strong documentation and community support so AfterTheDeadline clients.
I'm after feedback at this point: Is this a good candidate for a patch? I want to make a good time investment, whether for my team or myself.
I'm spoiled by fantastic feedback - have at it :)
