Re: Lampadas Concerns

Eric -
This is great. I feel like we've finally got a clear explication of what
it is we need the doctablish system to do. And it sounds from David's

This captures the most important feature for me - the ability to see
things done, and things not done.

Another important role in my opinion.

Would Lampadas be directly linked to our cvs, so it would know when a
doc is updated? Or would a manual step be required to tell it?

Thanks again, Eric, for the investigation.
