Hi, first I'm working on my new site. Hopefully I'll upload it this
weekend :-). Well, there is not much to say about it. It's only an idea so
far. I haven't started coding anything.

I have web-space, we can host the stuff there.

Well, my idea with REBDOC was to create an easy-vid like tool, for a
complete Rebol documentation. So, there are two parts to the project:
1. The tool
2. The content
The hard part is 2 ;-) IMO it makes sense if we create a plain good old
faishoned Rebol documentation paper. One big HTML page etc.
IMO we don't need an other Wiki. My idea is to create a manual you can
read front-to-end, not a fragmenting pool of snippets. First, we have
enough such pools, second, those only help you if you know quite a lot
about Rebol. Robert<
