It is me that is slow. I have been marking tests.
I agree with all you say, but I am going to be a bit more adventurous with the 1.5 release.
I am also going to have to do some patching but there are a couple of functions that I need in 1.5, so I am moving up at the moment in preparation for courses that start again in mid April. I may be doing this far to early, but I have had no serious problems with 1.5 in test yet, touch peeling formica and chipboard.
My Red Hat linux box stands unused behind me. It is still a server and it is still serving, but no one commands on its command line.
I hope this changes. I would like to be able to try out the CVS versions of Moodle. And to help the Japanese language translator via CVS. I am also having problems trying to record Skype phonecalls and using my linux box as a recording studio may be the answer.
