Subject Re: [Discussion] Geronimo web site update
Date Wed, 21 Feb 2007 01:18:00 GMT
I may have an updated template on my local system... will try and  
find it.

I'm really tempted to hack the AutoExport plugin to pull templates  
from URL's, so we can configure it to use a URL from SVN for the  
template... and probably can even get includes working to allow  
splitting up the template into more manageable bits.

But... last I looked at the AE plugin it started to melt my brain...  
so who knows.
