Um, I admire the Twisted project and I hope it will mature someday.
The Twisted people do not miss much occasions to mention Twisted.
Which is understandable but I think they should not do that until the
Twisted documentation is better. You really need more tutorials,
step-by-step stuff. And also for Windows users, otherwise at least
mention it is aimed at *n*x people until then.

They do not work and I just downloaded Twisted (.exe and .zip for
docs). I am using Windows yes, like most people. No idea how to do
``mktap'' using Windows so what do you think people do next? They
remove Twisted. And they think 'Wasted some more time with open
source stuff'. And that is a shame and that is not what you want.
Please stop coding and working on functionality until you have good
docs. You have a doc explaining the difference between a framework
and a library, that is good. More of that! About daemons, servers,
internet protocols, tutorials, whatever. I think your project is
great and I hope it will not die from the
open-source-amateur-be-cool-read-the-source-virus. Open source is
great but weak without good docs.
