    I had some concerns with some files listed in /conceptmap/cmapweb/cmapweb/ that seemed to be either clutter or cached files and have asked Jorge to clarify that they are necessary and not actually cache files (which should be in moodledata rather than wwwroot). Peace - Anthony

    The files are part of the editor's javascript code, which was created using GWT (Google Web Toolkit). The plugin is completely self contained and no external code is required.

    Hi Jorge,
    i've just looked at this. Thanks for clarifying about cmapweb folders above.

    In the readme you mention 2.1 onwards but here you've selected 2.0 only. i guess you might want to reselect the versions there.

    While you're editing that, in the same form there are URLs fields. Please feel free to populate those (issue tracker , code repository especially) as this helps with feedback about the plugin smile

    I've approved this but i've set the supported versions to 2.0 and 2.1.

    Please feedback if this is incorrect.

    Just fixed a problem between Moodle and Googe Web Toolkit for languages to include country specific languages like es_CL, us_GB or pt_BR. Moodle treats these in lower cases, and GWT requires it with the country in uppercase, a little hack in the code did the trick in version 1.3.2.
