Web Page now on sourceforge CVS

The BBDB web page at is now kept in the html directory of the CVS tree. Developers may make adjustments to the pages, but they're not automatically flushed to the website. Well, yet, anyway. The SourceForge logo at the page end is required by the SourceForge guys, before you ask.

Posted 2.00.06 release

Matt Simmons' last version of BBDB, 2.00.06, has been added to the "release files" section of the BBDB project. This is to allow folk to grab the tarball without having to play with CVS.

Almost ready to go

The SourceForge setup for BBDB is almost ready to go live. CVS is in place (i.e. you can do anonymous checkouts) and I'm working on getting everything else in order by Monday evening.
