Re: Gnome Journal Article and General Beagle Publicity

I do think it is ready for plug and play.  In Foresight, we have it
setup to run automatically.  The user doesn't have to do anything.  We
do also keep it very current, we always get new versions cooked up the
same day beagle releases.  It has really worked pretty well for most
people for some time now.  Most folks don't even understand beagle.
They just know they pop open that search tool or type in some text in
the deskbar applet and it does the right thing.  The user doesn't really
know it is beagle doing the work.  They have have a great search tool.
That is the way it should be, imho.
