Thanks, I will try to do more of these messages as I make/see changes like this in the trunk. > I wonder where this information usually is dissiminated.

I think very few people read the checkin messages, and they seldom contain "big picture" narrative anyhow. I think messages here should be sent when there are big picture impacts. It can act like informal historical documentation. > Is information about Zope development only discussed orally at zope.com, > or is attached as comments in the cvs, or where do you guys keep each > other up to date about changes taking place? We have weekly "jam sessions" where we often hash out new ideas. Certainly the CVS is commented, but it is at quite a low level. I think we (ZC'ers) all know we can do a better job desseminating our ideas to the community. It really a question of bandwidth (or lack thereof). On the bright side, your message has inspired me to be a bit more of a "narrator". It's always glad to hear when people actually read something I write and get something out of it. > > regards Max M > > -- > > "Sorry I would Really Like To Help More On This Project, > But Am To Busy Doing Paid Work On A Tight Deadline" > Max M Ain't it the truth ;^) -Casey _______________________________________________ Zope-Dev maillist - [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://lists.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev ** No cross posts or HTML encoding! ** (Related lists - http://lists.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce http://lists.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope )
