Never having used or installed Omega, I can't comment. It would seem
to make most sense for the support files for all implementation to be
taken from a single common master, where the system is capable of
using them (ie if the system conforms to the TDS).

Should we (do we?) distribute non-TDS systems?

I'm sure it's not, and Im happy to go with whatever works and is
easiest to support.


BTW, can someone fix this list: it's broken -- replies go to the
individual sender instead of the list, which is lunacy for a mailing
list where the _default_ is surely public discussion, not private
response. It should only be necessary to depart from the default on
the very rare occasions when you want to make a personal comment to
the sender. The norm should be that replies go to the list.
