It is not clear to me, precisely what you are looking for from us:

  1. Confirm/deny that the research is valuable and that it has many applications.
  2. [Your ongoing work] Confirm or discuss the method you are embarking on, to make the server and db more useful, more functional, to progress the research. Discuss any methods we may have used.
  3. Read some of your papers, and provide more relevant reviews, than your past reviewers. Hopefully because we are not scared of the mathematics involved. Discuss the three concerns your past reviewers raised.
