Re: [tablix-list] Mailing List? What Mailing List?

It shouldn't always be that one person (i.e. Tomaz) who has to reply - that is
clearly unfair and as a list grows, an impossible burden for that person. If
a problem appears on a mailing list I will always have a go at solving it or
at least seeing if I can reproduce it. The 'rules' of open source projects
are that if you sit on a specialist mailing list you should feel obliged to
contribute on some sort of regular basis.

As yet, I don't have enough expertise to contribute much but it would seem to
me that other people on the list could have helped with:

1. The CVS version doesn't appear to work with 'preferred-room' for me at
least. Can anyone else say that it does or does not?

2. Questions about output on interim or partial solutions and duplicate

And so on...

Kind Regards
