Jack brought up a good point - this discussion came up during the
sprints, I believe Martin and others had some good arguments to keep
*some* of the demo/... stuff, however I think we all agreed that it
belongs somewhere else; possibly the documentation.
As it is, the demo/... directory only exists in subversion - it's not
installed anywhere. I really do think that most of the contents can
either be deleted, or moved to the docs where it might be of more use
for people in general.
Random thought - what if we made a docs/demos directory, which
contained sub directories ala Demo/... - and added a sphinx extension
which would detect nested directories and zip them up during the
build? This way, you could add a tag in the .rst for the module that
The zip would not be checked in, but created at build time from
Just some thoughts. Back to my coffee.
