I understand Micheal's points quite well. Although, the direct points made
during this conversation are not the only things that anyone should be
...behind the points of the "inspiring contributors" suggestions,
simply asking for "someone" to inform us of how to get more involved.
--- No one is expecting any changes to suit their perceptions. However it
would be nice to get
a reply-as to whether or not any development help is needed or , better yet,
What we/they would like to know:
Beyond what is set in black and white and the information we can find in
own searching, how else can we get "involved" into helping develop
radiant ? Would someone be nice enough to provide specifics ?
...or flame my idea...any response will do.
- I hope that this point isn't a "thorn in anyone's side". We/they would
like to help.
