No, just very busy with uni work (in my case anyhoo). I finish this
module tomorrow, and with the exception of having to come up with a
dissertation topic (suggestions *very* welcome - it's for an MSc in IT)
I'm now on a break until February so will hopefully have a bit more time
I'm fairly indifferent about how the site is designed from a s/w spec
point of view. What I do think matters is:
- the design should match what we're aiming for on the portal (the most
common complaint I hear is that all our sites look different).
- the look and feel should be centralised so we can update the design of
the entire site by changing only a single stylesheet and template or
- Ideally please use PHP/PostgreSQL as that is what most of us know.
As for your pal putting his name on his work, I think that is only fair
if he is doing the work, as long as it is not obtrusive.

I assume that's fairly easy isn't it Andreas? Just a case of using the
full identifier in the code (eg pt_BR for Brazilian Portuguese or pt_PT
for Portuguese Portuguese).

I think we need some commitment of the work being undertaken by the rest
of the team first - our major problem seems to be that although we're
all basically enthusiastic, we're all pretty busy. I think the main
priorities right now should be v3.0, but then there is also a new
techdocs site to consider as well. So, Andreas, Michael et al. can you
let us know if you have any sort of roadmap for getting v3 live?
