As well, I noticed couple of branches within the PAS branches
sub-directory. Are all these branches currently relevant ?
I started to implement a set of plugins for CPSDirectory with the goal
of having PAS, hopefully, as the default UserFolder for the next release
of CPS (3.4.0).
Are there known problems / issues with PAS at this point that would need
to be addressed apart for the setup and configuration points you
mentioned Tres ?
