Soon. This is going to be my top priority in about a week.
There are screenshots of the current update system that I wrote a couple
of summers ago on the wiki, and some notes for the new system.
I checked in the first bits of the new version into cvs today. It
doesn't do much, but it defines the database model and a few
controllers, and lots of TODO comments.
If anyone is interested in helping out with this project, please let me
know. I will be laying out some detailed tasks in the near future that
people can work on.
