Hi there,

A short report on the projects I can remember off the top of my head 
that were worked on today:

* megrok.kss got updated, polished, extended, documented more, and 
released. More ideas are floating around to make it even better.

* megrok.rdb: we had a thorough decision on design of a RDB-backed 
Container implementation. We started sketching out 'science fiction' 
code for its implementation and started preparing the ground for its 
real implementation.

* A spin-off discussion from the megrok.rdb discussion resulted in our 
inventing a grok.traversable directive and we now have a team that works 
on its implementation.

* a team worked on finalizing and merging Uli's Sphinx-based grokdocs 
work into the trunk. More work was done to improve our svn-managed 
documentation itself.

* grokcore.component was released and the trunk now uses it!

* a team has been looking into zc.sourcerelease to help Grok's 
implementation story. They also started working on improvements to 

* the 'url' method has now been improved to also take an optional 'data' 
argument to generate URL pameters.

* a grok.OrderedContainer component was added.

* grok.require can now refer to Permissions directly (on a branch), 
instead of only on a name basis.

* the documentation team offered several comments for improvements of 
the website experience and started wiki gardening.
