Is there any "seaside for dummies" guide explaining how to install it on a
Debian server and start shared development, versioning, etc? That would
imply Gemstone, if I understand your msg. One of the things that make a tool
widespread is really those "all in one page" guides that abound for many
tools. My opinion is that such things, if published on the Seaside site,
would make a lot of difference.
