Part of his point was that the installation instructions on the website do
not result in a working system.  This is something we talked about here
several months ago, and nothing has been done about it.  Repeating what I
said then, how many people do you think have found the website, tried to
install Trinity according to the instructions there, ended up with a
hopelessly buggy system and a lot of time wasted, and will never try Trinity
again?  Lou is one of a tiny minority who have come to the mailing list
looking for help -- many, many more simply go away quietly.

How hard would it really be to fix the website?  What would it take -- 20
minutes?  And how many are there here who are perfectly capable of doing it
if given access?  It would move the project from a few developers and
die-hard dedicated groupies, to an actual viable DE that anyone can install
and use.  I would've thought that would be a pretty high priority, but what
do I know?
