[sword-devel] New Sword Website: Drum roll please...
Tue, 10 Jul 2001 11:20:26 -0700
The news problem has been solved, with Troy's approval I would like to
use NewsPro (http://www.amphibianweb.com/newspro/), which is a perl script
that makes it all easy to add news items and archive them. So that will be
installed and integrated before the site goes live for the public.
