CommentIt Plug in

Interesting that Jim thinks it is his fault, I was about to write 
that it was mine. :-)

I develop commentit as part of another much larger root, which 
contains among other things, manilaextras.  From time to time, Jim 
downloads or updates the  big root and extracts the relevant scripts 
and creates a new version of the commentit root. with just the plugin 
script. For this to work, I have to remember that the plug-in is 
meant to be independent  of bayly.root and Jim has to test in a way 
that finds my errors. I think we both failed in this version.

If you're interested in other plugins and features of bayly.root, or 
if you want to use an up-to-the-minute  bleeding edge version of 
commentIt  with bug fixes and new features coming through by 
rootupdates, then you should download bayly.root, uninstall commentit 
root  (close the root and removed from user.databases) and install 
bayly.root following instructions on the my website.[1]. Then install 
commentit again

You might wonder why we maintain 2 versions. It's partly  because I 
am blissfully ignorant of frontier on Windows and Jim is not ; and 
partly because I  already run too many plugin roots  and don't really 
see the point of a root per plugin but don't mind if other people 
want to do it that way.

If this is more than you wanted to know, don't worry Jim will fix the 
version he looks after.
