[REBOL] Re: Cookbook submissions idea

Hello Jason,

I didn't find any info about this REBOLDOC project on Robert's website (Saw an OpenDOC entry but nothing else) Robert can you comment about this please ?

I also went from there to Langreiter's one and really love the revealing aspect of the demonstrated TouchGraph as used there to index and relate the interconnection of snips (small information chunks linked together by hyperlinks) I visited it and found some small REBOL notes from Holger and others that could be indexed since they explain some important misconceptions ppl tend to have when starting with View - compared with VB for example. I can try to start one locally but I have no Web server that can help here to publish anything on the Web for reviewing, commenting and editing by other ML members. In this case I would prefer to install a plain wiki I got many years ago that worked well here locally the first time I tried to install it - remember it was not the same at all with Vanilla. However if someone desires to host me for this project and give me some access to his own Vanilla operated site, I'll be glad to accept his invitation. What do you think about ? Don't forget that the main points here are simplicity, visibility and sharing of ideas and code.

Thanks. It's been a too long time I didn't visit Graham's site. Last time I think it was not operating a Vanilla site at all.
