Well, actually, apart from cut&paste'ed code snippets when we're discussing
specific parts of the code, all of us have had write access to the CVS
Repository so we just comitt directly. We've been working on sufficiently
different parts of the code that there have been few conflicts[0] so there
has been little need to pass patches back and forth first.

I've never been much for IRC -- USENET is my thing -- but I've come to the
conclusion that IRC can be a very effective tool for projects such as this.
Despite certain timezone-related problems[1], it's worked remarkably well.

Anyone interested in the development of the Validator is strongly
reccomended to stop by. If for no other reason then to remind Gerald to
stop by w-v every once in a while. :-)

[0] - Well, except when I get carried away and try to "improve" on
      Martin's i10n code, breaking it horribly in the process.
      Hi Martin! :-)

[1] - Gerald is in Canada (GMT - 6 hours), I'm in Norway (GMT + 2 hours),
      and Martin in Japan (GMT + 9 hours). It makes for an interesting
      synergy when some of us are on our first cup of coffee and some on
      their third _pot_ of coffee. :-)
