Forum OpenACS Q&A: Response to Code freeze in favor of documentation for 4.7

Posted by Tilmann Singer on
Notes does not use the content repository. It is just a very simple example package that shows how to define a new object type and use some basic oacs 4 features.

For that purpose a demo package has its place, IMHO, because it does not confuse the newcomer with tons of functionalities. Also it is a very good starting point for problemset-like assignments, e.g. "extend the notes package by one text field and write an upgrade script".

As soon as one understands the basic concepts it is certainly better to study a real package though. So I don't think a demo-only package for the CR would be necessary.

I'll sit down later today and ad_formize notes if nobody has done so yet.
