Yeah, does anyone want to build a Makefile to pull together our specs
(please beat me to it). I don't see any reason for using autotools, as
we are not really building cross-platform code, bur rather shared media
Maybe we should have:
This would be the place for us to ship our specs. along with the other
shared content. Thoughts?
Do we even have anything to put in our repository? We currently have CVS
setup, but I filed a bug just now to get SVN setup:
What I think is ideal is this. Specs written in the wiki and then we run
a command to pull them into a readable format for release. And then, any
shared content is contained in our SVN repository.
We need to talk about what content that would be thought.
