Subject site product breakdown
Date Sat, 19 Jun 2004 16:09:51 GMT

Looking at the recent front page graphics - there is a trend going on to 
expand the set of things referred to as "Products". I think we need to 
pull back for a moment and rethink this.  I think we should not be 
presenting Repository, Tools, or Magic under "Products".  Repository in 
its current form is not distributable as a stand-alone product (it could 
be, but until that time comes it should remain a technical sub-system of 
the Merlin Runtime).  Tools and in particular Magic should not be 
promoted as products because they are for the moment internal to Avalon 
and still in active development.

A second issue concerns Merlin Discovery - the material describes an 
product intent, as opposed to a product that is available. While getting 
Discovery in place is mainly linked to finalizing the HTTP Facility, 
there is still the question - should we be including "intented" items 
within our "Product" breakdown?  My own feeling is that the material 
currently under the Merlin Discovery heading is fine - but others may 
feel differently.
