since it seems that everyone wants some kind of tracking in damned-lies
I have created a page in l.g.o:
so feel free to improve or extend its content ;)
exporting a xml with the registered people to make the gnome-about
rewriting damned-lies to something else I don't think its doable (at
least for me), it looks like trying to kill flies with bombs, I mean, we
want to add some functionality to damned-lies, not rewriting it, and I
think it isn't crappy (from performance or design) that we have to make
another tool from the scratch (or reusing something as others have
maybe we can try to agree with what we want to make this tracking thing
and then start looking at all the possibilities :)
