First off, thanks to everyone who is working on Typo in their spare time.

I think one major thing that could've helped prevent this problem was
having a page up somewhere to point people to detailing the problems
with Rails 1.1 and Typo and showing how to freeze at 1.0.  I dunno how
the conflict has been known, but I know I only saw the topic discussed
on this list a few days before 1.1 dropped.  IRC is great for some
people, but its really no substitute for a FAQ or wiki to point people
to reach the wider user base.
