Hi Charles and other listers,

We are getting there indeed! Your paragraph below summarizes exactly  
what I had in mind. Both ways are very similar indeed, and from the  
point of view of the "user" your approach might be better because the  
tag will only contain the relevant code (while with my approach it  
would contain all trunk code).

So, I'll move the code Alex has written to a folder called 1.7 inside  
the Tags folder and remove it from the trunk. Does everyone agree on  
It still feels a bit strange, but given the schizophrenic nature of  
BioCocoa, this will be the best indeed. I hope we can quickly have  
our own code use our own foundation classes and move it all to the  

If I don't hear any indications against this approach, I'll create  
the repository later today, so we can all start working on the code ;-)

Regarding the website: I agree it needs a major treatment, and I'm  
willing to do this, but I'm afraid it won't be before the end of the  
month. Orbicule takes away too much of my time right now....
If anyone thinks it should be done sooner, feel free to do so. You  
have "carte blanche".
