Do people think that a development system would be generally useful to
keep around - ie are there people who would be more inclined to hack on
OpenGuides if they had login access to a system which could run it
without too much hassle?
I think it is useful for a number of reasons
- OG needs quite a tranche of modules. This puts off people like
myself who have an allergy to installing modules (**)
- sometimes you might have work in progress you want to share with
another developer. Being able to say "have a look at
/home/andrew/blah/blah and see if you can see......" is easier than
having to email or whatever your half fished changes.
- it might be useful to have a development set up with some realistic
data from which you can clone your own set up.
