Ok donut ;P,

Seriously though that is why I suggested working either as 4.1 (maintenance)
in the HEAD branch or the new version 5.0.  I would lean towards the
current stuff being in the branch and the new stuff in HEAD.

For the container, yes.  The container needs to be started in

For framework, I want to work on one repository.  I want to clean out
all the deprecated stuff so that talks can begin from the current status
and clean plate.

I agree.  BTW, we need to archive the contents from "Testlet" CVS, and
then remove the CVS repository.  The archive can be placed in a new
CVS just in case someone wants to revive it.

I don't like having a bunch of separate directories.  Let's focus
one step at a time on one Avalon, one community vision.
