Hi Gordon, congratulations!

I would really like to see a full documentation for all 31 modules e- 
commerce modules.  I think showing a strong base of documentation and  
support for e-commerce would bring a tremendous amount of development  
dollars to the platform.

If we could start working together to get administration help  
documentation for the main modules that would be great!

Matt, thanks for all your hard work.  New companies are being  
launched based on all your hard work!
