[Biococoa-dev] Subversion proposal [correction]

Hi Alex,

I love the Wiki idea! It would be a great way to share the To-Do  
lists and code snippets indeed! BTW: didn't we have a BioCocoa wiki  
already? I seem to remember this vaguely (maybe it was just a  
dream ;-)).

Regarding the SVN: see my previous post to the list. I think Charles'  
approach might be the best for our end users. Keep the trunk as it is  
now in CVS and have a tag with your code. People who want to use the  
framework just check out the latest tag (= your version) and they are  
all set. As you write, we should aim asap for a BioCocoa 2.0 that  
only uses our own foundation classes.
