Whoa. Wait a sec. This was not my intention at all - and I certainly 
didn't mean to cause *any* sort of friction between us whatsoever. :(

Please understand, previously we had a developer who, though he would 
use the repository, discussed almost nothing with anyone else concerning 
the code, and consequently no one else could easily follow what he was 
doing. I am simply anxious not to repeat that.

Though I don't think you were intending to do the same thing - I'd be 
much more comfortable if everyone was able to see/view/comment on the 
code from the beginning - even at its very earliest stages.

George, I am very sorry if my words offended you, they were not meant to 
in the least.

As far as releasing buggy stuff - that isn't my intention either. This 
is all still POC code under development, and won't be recommended to be 
used until it is shown to provide solid results on all the books in 
question. I just want to make sure the development happens publicly.
