Please suggest improvements. Privately if neccessary. Thanks.

My bad, I admit.

My bad, I admit. IT students, course assignments for one semester. 2 students 
in each group. That's all I know and it's not even certain.

My limited shell scripting abilities made me use copy. Next release tarball 
will use CVS structure as you wish. I have to do the copying in the install 
script then.

My fault. It's been my first try. Noone told me. So much for testing :-) You 
spoke up. I will change it.

Your choice. I will put the short version in the Wiki (sometimes) People might 
contact you then.

True. It doesn't sound arrogant. Your choice. Note however that this simply 
won't happen. Ask Google is no option for a start. I can live with it. I am 
pessimistic by choice but the only chance to get someone is by handholding. 
My opinion. You chose not to. Fine.

It's like cure yourself just ask google :-) or medline or many great online
