Hi Hazel,

Sorry you find Alfresco difficult to navigate, and sorry that the
contributor documentation on the subject is not up to date. I'll be
addressing the problem as soon as possible. Meanwhile, do feel free to

thoroughly as possible.

@Jean: I'm busy on a client project for the next 10 days to come, and
I'm also waiting for mail back about the 2 key problems with the Share

documentation - starting with the Power User Guide to be developed
from the existing technical writer's guide contributed by those

I'll be following up on my last unanswered mail to my mentor this
weekend. I'll mail back to the list with news as soon as possible -
certainly sometime within the next 2 weeks. In any case, I'm not
asleep at the wheel here... ;-)
