      OK, but what about Wiki support for the G.O.D.? It may be nice addition for the StP site, BTW...

            You see, some people write long, interesting and involving posts, and I think it must be preserved for future generations. Here wiki approach may be handy.

                However it won't be that useful for GOD as it won't be on the website. Maybe the online documentation...

                            Rasbelin, did you ever read GNU GPL? If so, why the open source project is meant to be partialy secret ("StPDT eyes only"). This is bad habit, BTW, please explain.

                              It's not secret information. GOD is a collection of information that is visble on the forums too, so it doesn't include any secret information. Also notice that GNU GPL doesn't mention anything about having to publish all the docs related to the designing of the game. Every project has documents and other notes that aren't published because their value to the public is low. The sam goes for GOD. It only makes it easier for the developers to work on the project. If someone who's not involved in the project reads the GOD, he/she would most likely wonder what's this all about as it's not that much of a book with clear instructions. It's simply a guideline.

                                OK, but free sharing of the source may imply free sharing of any docs etc. Any docs are usualy covered by GNU Free Documentation Licence, BTW. In fact, while closing G.O.D. for "third-party" people isn't direct sin against opensource, it's unusual and possible bad habit. I really fond of opensource software (my 30Gb HDD is now 97% full worth of it), download/compile/use it, and most of this projects (almost any, can't remember opposite examples) have their docs either on the site or included with distribution (or both). If you dare to create game with broad user basis, wide porting, much of mods/plugins/addons you must share much of information with your would-be users (and possible co-developers).
                                So I firmly suggest you read "Cathedral and Bazaar", "Magic Cauldron" and "Hackers revenge" (and possible others), The Book of open source savvy. It is here:
