Let entire Cabal view AlphaFAQlets

SiteDocClan have the ability to create alphafaqlets, which are like normal sitefaqlets except they are only visible by SiteDocClan. The idea is to let the author "submit" the FAQlet to the rest of the Clan for review before it goes public.

I believe this feature would be more useful if draft FAQlets could be reviewed by more people before going public. Therefore, I'm proposing that AlphaFAQlets be visible to the entire Cabal.

I would simply have written a patch for this and let it go through the normal patch review/ignore process; but the change involves modifying a node field, rather than patching code.

Update: as of Nov 10, 2006 at 19:00 UTC, this has been done. Thanks, tye!

We're building the house of the future together.

[haukex]: not the most efficient, but then again, I don't have that many modules on CPAN :-)
[Corion]: haukex: Yes, but if it's only supposed to run on my machine, I can be far more liberal with how I extract the code etc.
[Corion]: haukex: Yes - I see the benefit of using Dist::Zilla for people with 150+ modules on CPAN, but I don't see it for myself, and I'm always put off from contributing to such modules because they require a lot of toolchain setup that I don't want to ...
[Corion]: ... spend time on if I only want to provide a short patch
[haukex]: Corion: Yes exactly, in the author tests I don't worry about portability as much, I also don't list the author tests' dependencies in Makefile.PL
[haukex]: I figure someone who wants to contribute will know how to install the missing modules ;-) Not the nicest way to go but I don't think many people are using my modules yet
