Absolutely agree with Dan on need to get a baseline 3.2 sorted soon

Scott, your suggestions sound like they will need a fuller
discussion. There have been many other changes since 3.1 we need to
get out there officially. 3.2 tag should go in soon. We can then go
into the whole installer thing in more detail, but the priority is to
have a base 3.2 especially so everyone can check code for the book
with a known version.
Josh, Nick, Dan,
Sorry, I should have been clearer. I wasn't pushing for these changes
be made for 3.2. (It is awfully tempting to try and cram in
everything you've ever wanted done though isn't it!) I just wanted to
point out what I think the issues and likely solutions are regarding
this area. I thought that was a useful thing to do, as it might help
us from rushing into (or wasting time on) a less than ideal solution
while a deadline hangs over our head.
A package/ installer is something I've thought would be a good idea
for awhile, so kudos to Josh for doing it! But we don't have to make
the 'ultimate' version now, and given that there are likely changes
to quarks and other things on the horizon, there's no sense spending
too much time on a solution which will be short lived.
