This site has been my life line.  A lot of the examples are very good,
especially the howto on creating modules and new node types.

I've got a CVS account ... do I just need to log in and create a new
directory to start a project?  I have two modules I am currently
working on.  One download that simulates a permission based tree
stucture for downloading (we hope to add CVS and directory syncing
capabilities to this one) and the Mantis module for the integration.
Both of these modules are in the very early stages, but they offer
some functionality that could be improve apon.

How about questions like what is the best way to accomplish
functionality with X api or questions about node operations.?  Support
or dev?
