more feedback: editable messages? etc....

hi all,

While people are thinking about the sanitize bug, here's my experience
so far with some other parts of the default setup.

(1) how important is pingback ?
First, a general question: does pingback need to be setup right from the beginning?

(2) install.txt/debian set up scripts - IMHO the user should be told
to look through all the options in config.yaml and have a lot more
explanation on what they are - #comments in the config.yaml itself
(as in apache/httpd.conf) with full explanations might also be a good
idea - the httpd.conf internal doc is not 100% clear, but it is mostly
fairly readable.

(3) Aggregation (wiki) - how can this be turned on?

i published with (message.rb) some messages, with the editable box
clicked on. However, i can't find any page from which i can edit
these allegedly editable messages.

there is discussion of  dct:isVersionOf
and in config.yaml i have:

  'dct::isVersionOf': {Message: version_of}

The string "edit_page" only seems to be present in message.rb for
previewing a page - i can't find it anywhere else.

Any hints on how to turn on the wikification?

(4) focus: i haven't (so far) found out how (through the web interface
as a moderator) how to apply the focuses listed in config.yaml:
  - 'focus::Quality'   # default focus
  - 'focus::Priority'
  - 'focus::Relevance'

i found some way of doing something related to focuses and resources
and it had some effects (link them together with ratings in the range
-2 to +2), and i'm sure if i read a bit more it will become clearer,
but IMHO we're going to have to have a lot more intuitive user
interfaces - e.g. with diagrams, not just words - if we want people
who are already unfamiliar with tech stuff to be able to handle this.

(5) message.rb - misleading error message for ^J^J in text/uri-list

i tried previewing the message

# guest writes an editable message... as in

and got

User Error
text/uri-list should contain at least one absolute URI.

although the error was due to having the third line empty (^J^J)

IMHO this error message is misleading, since although it is true, it
says nothing about what the real error is. Probably it is a bad idea
to code a... URL directly into message.rb -

On the other hand, my guess is that this option is for people with some level of "tech" understanding of the web, so probably it's not a priority to correct anyway - tech people know how to find tech answers.
