Thank Nancy,

So development of drupal modules which are not part of the core go to 
support - I did not know this so thanks.

Will be looking a views again tonight (day job to do!). I am looking 
into helping out port LinkedIn to Drupal 7 but felt I might be best just 
getting a simple view/database module going first. I do have on question 
with regard to building the code though, is there a standard approach to 
where to put the bits. I understand .install and .info but where how to 
split up the pages seems unclear to me.
