'GitHub can notify you when people interact with your code'

You have account settings to turn on/off exactly what you get notified about.

Does that meet your requirements?

I will only be involved if there is a way to subscribe to changes, so they come 
at me, instead of me needing to go to them.

I will personally pay for a business bronze github subscription to help set 
this p.
We need a small handful of people who are willing to work with setting this up 
roperly as well as people who already have tools worthy of being shared to mail 
those people either permission to them in the repository.
Steve & Will, would you be willing to be involved? Anyone who is can email me @ 
anmcg...@gmail.com and I will set it up this weekend then email out the 
nformation to get this started.
Once people are committed we can work out appropriate licensing info, etc.
Regards,

In order to realize this vision, does every solution have to be implemented in 
ICK?
If the goal is to "make our development tasks more efficient" it is making sure 
he labor that one of us puts in is not reproduced by another, i.e. Pick syntax 
iles for various tools.
The "collaboration point" whether it is pickwiki or another, does not have to 
ost the code, but pointers to the places where the resource can be maintained 
roperly.
An example is the MAKEXML program on the wiki.  I have used that many times and 
 seriously appreciate ECL and KRJ for making it available.
s it perfect, not really, every time I use it, I get the docstring twice.  The 
iki is not the way to communicate that it needs a patch.
f I did (which I should) fix my copy, who do I communicate it to?  We also need 
o let people know under what license we post the code under.  Can I put MAKEXML 
p on my github and patch it, giving attribution to ECL and KRJ?

 As the OP, I like the idea of a wiki, provided it can either use straight TML,

ufficient traction that most gearheads know how to use them, the other

 Make it searchable.  Sure.  I assume that any web pages are searchable.  You 
ave to actively make something not searchable AFAIK.

 Useful examples - hopefully.  Make sense to everyone - probably not as  
possible.  But anything that doesn't make sense, you'd be able to  markup

 I didn't address docs, but sure why not.

 Collaborate - that's the main point of my message really.  To find a way to 
ollaborate that is more immediate, and more used that PickWiki which seems very 
ob-webby to me.

 So, I thought what the original poster was getting at was:
 1) Create a documentation/wiki/example site
 ) Make it searchable
 ) Have useful examples that make sense to everyone
 ) Also post the vendor/var docs
 ) Collaborate on ideas (like we do here) Maybe you guys are talking  about 
something else...
 Github, svn, cvs, PRC and all those are great tools, but, they  probably ren't 
going to create the "Wikipedia" of the MV world.
 The above can be done, but, it needs to become a living/breathing  thing hat 
gets updated a lot, otherwise, folks won't use it.  Hence  the
 hallenge- making it a living/breathing thing.
 I know this kind of thing has been tried, and is being tried... but  there 
robably isn't enough flag waving and marketing to keep it going.
 Or people create something, and try to make it subscription based,  which in 
his day and time is never going to work with something like the bove.
 Some of the things I know about are:
 http://www.nuwiki.com/cgi-bin/nuwiki.cgi?home&project=nuwiki
 ttp://www.keyally.com/prdb/universe/basic_tree_all.html
 ttp://www.pickwiki.com/cgi-bin/wiki.pl
 Anyway, I'd like to help with something like that.  I'm just not sure  at my 
tage in life, that I have the time to spearhead it and become  the chief 
Architect" of something like that.

  Would it not be possible to set up a mailing list for any changes to
  Incubator code?  So all users on that list get emailed when a change  is
  made?
  I think this would propel both use of the code, and <s>misuse</s>
  enhancement.

  Great that there are all these new possibilities, but if you have to
  figure everything out yourself it becomes very difficult to keep up 
 with
  the technology.
  A lot of VARs (especially ours) are no help if you get the feeling 
 they
  know even less then you do.
  It is very frustrating if the business asks, 'can we do that?' and 
 you
  can only answer, 'yes, I know it's possible but I don't know how to 
 make
  it work.'
  And how am I to show the young guys all the flash things I have seen 
 in
  demos or heard about here if I can't get them to work myself?
