in reply to Continually updated code (discussion)

I think it would be great to be able to see code as it develops. (Not to mention that I'm rather interested in a VRML module.) I can only think of one problem that I can't really find a good solution for to make this work well: How will people know when the code is modified?

Unless you have a few people dedicated to checking your node every couple days, I'm afraid that it might be forgotten to anyone that wasn't directly involved with it. I considered making a post (possibly in "Discussion") that would let everyone know that it's been updated, but I think that would simply end up cluttering the Monastery with "Look over here now" posts. I guess I really don't have a good solution for this.

Don't get me wrong, I'd love to see the code online and I'd love to see it develop - I just don't want it to get "lost." If someone can think of a good way to overcome this little hitch, I think it would work great. Regardless, I'd like to see your code posted because I'd, at least, take periodic looks at it.
