Hi David

good question...
I dropped in here a few weeks ago. I managed to connect myself to the
CVS server and downloaded the stuff in there. (I tried to wrote a
about it).

And thats where I am now. I have both Delphi 5 Enterprise and CBuilder 5
(no experience with C though). I am too looking for some general
architecture, wish-list, status list or whatever.

Is there anyone in here who's got this documents?
Or can we find em somewhere in the CVS?
