That's what I have:

I'm using exactly this version.

In fact, I've not yet started to look at your code. And, as Fred has
told you, the issues with the server are unrelated to your code and most
of them are out of our hands (currently, we are blocked by the RAS since
Sunday afternoon).

But, on the other hand, I want to understand the basic working of your
module so as I can maintain it myself if you decide or are forced to
leave the project. Until there is enough interest in the democratic
experience, I'm in charge of the technical side of the project and I
should be able to solve issues in case they happen (or at least try
:-). And I disagree with you on some part of your design (the login

Of course, as you underlined it, I can't understand all Drupal in a few
weeks. But I can at least try to grasp an overview. In practice, I'll
rely on you for Drupal, as I'm relying on Christophe for the Windows
client. But at least with Christophe we are trying to transfer
knowledge. Even if that might sound a bit harsh to you after all the
hard work you have done, I'm still waiting to be convinced of the
*technical* merit of Drupal. With only 1762 lines of new PHP code, you
have done a lot of what we wanted to do in demexp for a long time
(forum, nice classification navigation). That's a good argument, but I'm
not (yet) entirely convinced. ;-)
