That's fantastic!

I don't think that's necessary. It's not just having a subversion
repo, but a place where shared development occurs. A read-only repo
wouldn't offer that. If you want to stick with Darcs then I think it's
best to do so whole heartedly. I only suggested SVN for consideration
b/c most of the Ruby community is using it, so it might encourage more
Nitro involvement.

Actually there was a good discussion about this:

Hmmm... well, it should only take a few minutes to comment out the
dead links. That in itself is a good start. Then if you just fill in
the image link "holes", the site would look 100% better just from
that. Put an image link for Oxy and one for Facets too if you want.
Almost anything is better than blank space.

That's good to hear!

I want to create a documentation wiki for Facets. And I do think Nitro
is the best solution for this. But I want to see 0.50 get out the door
and stablize a bit first --including having the examples run without
any fuss. I learn primarily by emulating examples, so it's important
to me to see those working top notch so I have something to work off

Thanks for heearing out my hopes and concerns!
