I already downloaded your latest version from assembla and I realize that I
have to do some investigation to make it work for me ;)

Is the code you have in assembla repository very different to the code you
are using for your blog?

I'll focus on tests firsts so that I can get a full understanding about how
the code works.

I'm very interested in learning AJAX techniques in Grok. Plone livesearch
widget uses KSS. I haven't used KSS before but I think there shouldn't be
any problem referencing the kss file on the page template the viewlet is
using it. However if we create more viewlets that use KSS referencing the
KSS file in each viewlet might not be the best option. Can a viewlet use the
resources referenced in the page template for the main layout?

Is it ok with you if I go ahead and register Grokstar project in launchpad?

Martijn, in http://wiki.zope.org/grok/GrokWiki is it ok if I create a
subsection called Grokstar?

Alternatively I have a MoinMoin instance in my slicehost. I can create
another wiki for Grokstar. However I don't have a domain name of my own. For
now we could use something like grokstar.dyndns.org

I got the zip from assembla. I couldn't figured out what is the URL that I
should use when for 'git clone'.
