Hi David,

Precisely, that's why I want fewer features at the begginning, but enough time 
to test and debug.

Yes, there is nothing binding nor official in what I wrote. 
Note that I didn't mention any date on the fr list announcement.

ok. Tell me when you're ready.

In any case, it will go public only when it is ready, whether earlier or 
the 1st of November is the date netizens start to vote on the top three 
projects in the competition you joined. 
Who knows? You might be in those top three... It would be nice to have 
something ready by then, if it happens. :) It would be a shame to miss an 
opportunity like this.

If not, then we have lost nothing, anyway.

Everybody needs holidays. :)

I'll install it later, so we can test together.

I noticed, thanks.
I'll probably work on that next, now that I have settled, I hope, the 
registration procedure.

This bug is a show stopper. 
Take everything at your own pace. I do not want to rush you, but this issue 
should be among your priorities (I mean priority among other demexp stuff, 
not priority in your private life! :). I *really* do not want to put pressure 
on you).

Don't worry: I agree with you in principle: we'll go public when we're ready 
and not earlier.
I still think that very early next month is feasible. 

We'll see.
