Hello TriZPUGers,

Hopefully all the PBC2 campers are joining up on the TriZPUG email list. 
I've warned them that the PBC2 email list will be shut down in the near 
future and they should move to the TriZPUG email list. So look for an 
influx of about 40 new subscribers to the TriZPUG email list. We just 
didn't want to burden TriZPUG with messages about hotels and lunch menus 
and when to be in class, etc..

We had a productive sprint this past weekend. We actually produced a 
real product. And we actually checked it into a Subversion repo:


That repo is temporary and will be moved to trizpug.org in the near 
future. You can read it anonymously, no problem, with your favorite SVN 
client. I like Tortoise SVN on Windows. Here's a tutorial on SVN for 
python is you need that:


In addition to seeing my office mate playing around with that SVN 
instance, you should also find a TriZPUG folder there. In TriZPUG, find 
the Jargon product folder. It's in a working state.

Jargon adds a factory type called Term. Term has a "word or phrase" and 
it's definition. We are in the process of repurposing SmartFolder to 
provide a placeless view skin for Terms. Cliburn Chan has the additional 
criteria code for that. Joseph Method has some nice code to make the 
view selectable by character of the alphabet. We're also going to tag 
each Term with a keyword, and have the view select on keyword as well.

If you were part of the sprint, your SVN userid is your IRC handle. 
Email me for you password, or if you'd like to specify a password. If 
you were not part of the sprint, email me your freenode.net IRC handle 
to get a Subversion userid and password.

Remember, don't check in code that isn't working.

Use this email list to query each other about getting together via IRC 
for more sprinting. You don't need everybody. Sprints can be just a 
couple or four people. All you need is a time, not even a place.
