Hey, why live in a valley of tears? I hope that "patience" won't be
recorded with dependencies in the package.json :-D !

I am using this list because I am not aware of any other ML dedicated to
the Annotator. Actually it sounds incorrect to me to use a *-dev mailing
list for setup issues like mine, and the ones of several other users here.

Actually, this mailing list is set up so that replies are addressed to
the original sender by default, and not to the list itself. IMHO this
may remove some traffic, but mixes things up. I cannot take the
attention of core developers for silly matters. I came with a simple
question like "what code should I read?" and I was answered by core
developers like Nick and Randall. This is just incredible to me, it is
like being helped by Dries Buytaert for setting up your LAMP. Nick,
Randall, you deserve more than this... :-))

So: I would say that the Annotator has a "core" part, and a "plugins"
I *suppose* that it would be possible to split up this list in something


Of course I'd then subscribe to "annotator-support" first.

I'm writing this mail because I expected to find a lot of discussion
about this matter within the >500 messages that I received since I
subscribed to this ML, but to my great surprise, I did not.

Thank you for reading so far.
