Here is a list of things I've done since GSoC got underway last week:

- reviewed the tutorial and posted some suggestions for improvement here

- checked that I can commit code by making a minor edit in Grokstar/setup.py [1]
  [1]  http://turing-club.googlecode.com/svn/grok/

- developed two very simple Grok examples and posted the code [2]
  [2] http://svn.zope.org/Grokstar/trunk/

- reinstalled the server that will host the Wandering Books apps

- installed Zope 3, and my sample apps there [3]
  [3] http://paleosoft.org/

- followed Martijn's suggestion to read about RDF and zc.relationship

- revised Phillip's TodoList code and posted it [2]

- read Part 1 of Phillip's book and made some notes for the errata
(nothing big, just typos)


After a brief look at the zc.relationship documentation I realized I
must get up to speed fast into Zope 3, therefore I am reading
Philipp's book as fast as possible, while practicing some Grok
development as well. My plan is to punt on the development of the
Book/Creator relationship using zc.relationship, and for the time
being implement a CreatorRole class that will serve as the link
between Books and Creators. Later I will refactor this with
zc.relatioship if we decide that is the way to go.

I'd like to know whether you are interested in having my simple apps
as examples on svn.zope.org, and if so, under which directory.

Tomorrow I will start implementing Kirbi itself with what I know, and
as I go along many questions will arise. I'd like to host that in
svn.zope.org, but where should I import it?

After finishing Philipp's book I should be able to contribute more to
Grok itself
