Dave et all,

I think the packaging will require some tidying, may I
suggest you structure the package into directories...
perhaps:

./cgi-bin/
./doc/
README
INSTALL

not sure what should happen about images etc... that
could get messy as they shouldn't be CGI but people
store their documents/images in differing locations so
you need some configuration... probably via a MySQL
table since you are using them.

I noticed there is no documentation distributed in
0.02, not even an INSTALL file... I have no idea which
modules I need to get it working - of which there are
some.

I appreciate at this stage you are in early
development and don't care much for packaging. Don't
include your CVS folder next time though :P

Anyway, take care,

Jonathan Paton

    Thanks for your input Jonathan. I'll keep your suggestions
    in mind when I begin to think about packaging.

    FWIW, LA.pm downloaded PGAS and somehow got it running.
    Pretty impressive considering the code is uncommented,
    there is no documentation and setting up the database must
    be done by hand.

    I will probably finish packaging in the next couple
    months. Database setup scripts are on my Task list for TPR
    (0,3):

    Pushed back packaging until TPR(0,4)...we'll see if *that*
    ever gets done. :-)

    I've done as much of this as I'm going to do.
