Daniela, that is a great idea. The current install doc (my fault since I
wrote it) is very daunting and would easily scare away some potential users.
Also, I suspect there are either new steps or unnecessary steps since this
doc was first created 20 months ago.
Welcome aboard, go for it.

There is a fair amount of overlap between your three scenarios, but I think
with a bit of organization you can minimize content replication.
The consumer one is most important today in my mind.

Mark, I agree with you. One can see that quite a few things have been added
or supercede info that is listed there. The time has come to give it a
shake down. :)
I was playing around with the idea of addressing three distinct
1) consumer: user who wants to use official release and add-ins,
2) developer: user who wants to use the CVS build(s) to modify and expand
the functionality, and
3) hosted: installing the Rainbow Portal with a third party service provider
What do you think? Or did I miss something?
