Subject Re: [Discussion] Geronimo web site update
Date Tue, 20 Feb 2007 00:05:17 GMT
Hey Jason,
I'm trying to catch up with the News/blog-posts on GMOxSITE as part of the web site update.
I created a few tests (added News) but these posts take forever to show up. Any suggestions?

Anyway, do you have any idea how could we port the *News* we have on the live site?
