Sure, I will be glad. You either post ways of improving here or in IRC or
It is hard to write quality documentation because code and features have
evolved very fast and not much developers are willing to help at all.
In a few weeks I will add a multizone support, so you can run something like
a static loadbalancing world, so you can split world on several pieces.

We use all the stuff the Sourceforge provides.
CVS for anonymous is read only. You better make patches ( or send the whole
file ) of what you change.

Sure, soon I will release a Zelda like game using Arianne to show how to use
the multizone system.
