Praise: Rev Documentation to the rescue

Hi Jim,

Thanks for the kind words.
Finding accurate information in a very large documentation, relevant  
example stacks to get started, tools or tutorials on web-sites, etc.  
is rather difficult when beginning... and later too!
Information is scattered in many places but this diversity is a sign  
of good health.
It's the reason why I imagined Resources Picker not as a plugin, but  
a relational tool.
The plugin, from keywords you enter, searches 40 relevant websites  
(customisable list), 200 Rev Online stacks, 100 RevNet resources,  
2000 docs files, 300 000 mailing lists contributions and 8 000 000  
000 web pages if needed :-)
At the moment, more than 100 developers have dowloaded this plugin  
since 10 days.
Thanks to all of them.
