Ryan McKinley commented on DROIDS-61:
-------------------------------------

| Sorry Ryan .. I'm new to the Apache site, and frankly it's not the easiest site to find
your way around! Apologies for starting out the wrong way

Nonsense!  learning the "apache way" takes some time...  typically the key is just asking
things on the mailing list (in this case droids-dev@incubator.apache.org) before doing much.
 Everyone is quite friendly :)  though sometimes busy so response may take some time.

>             Project: Droids
>          Issue Type: Question
>         Environment: Netbeans 6.7, multiple operating systems
>            Reporter: Tony Dietrich

> I have a project running (version1 is in use already, version 2 under development) that
needs to search out data from various sources, both by crawling websites and by using RSS
feeds. It also needs to accept data e-mailed directly to it, and read an FTP directory to
see what has been left there.
> I'm thinking Droids would be useful as a framework for this, with various droids doing
the different types of work.
> I notice your documentation is a little sparse. Would it help if I ran a 'work in progress'
document on the wiki?  This would not only help you guys see how someone is using droids,
but also give people a starting point for discussing possible enhancements.
> I'm looking at a 3-6 month timescale for my own project to reach release status, so developments
in droids over that timescale would be useful.
> I can already see some features I will need to implement in my own project, so there
may be areas where I can feed code back to you guys.
> I'm also using Netbeans, not Eclipse, so I can document the steps needed to get the imports
from svn working happily in Netbeans, if that'd help? (Took me around 30 minutes to get it
sorted, mainly because I had an older version of svn installed in the IDE.
> Let me know?
