Forum OpenACS Development: Response to Status update ... will there ever be a beta or final release?
Improving the OpenFTS install ... this would be awfully nice, and if anyone wants to tackle this feel free to e-mail me. But, again, I don't think we should be waiting. There are already people building production sites using versions from CVS and we've taken far longer than I wish to get to this point.
Documentation ... I've been saying that as soon as the install documentation was reasonably complete that I'd roll out a beta. The "bug fix only" creed doesn't apply to documentation in my mind, not for this release, anyway. A final release - yes, most certainly, we must wait until documentation's much more complete.
