Subject Re: Web site update
Date Wed, 21 Jun 2006 23:34:23 GMT
We now have the web site updated with the content from the trunk so the merge is behind.

I have a question though, we did not have branches for the web site before, just a "main"
trunk. 
What would be the criteria from now on to update the web site? There were updates to the web
site 
directly on the trunk while I was updating the branch may2006.

Not sure I understand why we need branches to maintain the web site now. We did the big "face
lift" 
and some reorg when we updated the look and feel and we only used trunk. Thoughts?

Cheers!
Hernan
