    Dear SEEKers,
    I have two comments regarding the use of CVS to store design 
documents images and diagrams that might be useful:
    1) People store files on CVS in various formats, and sometimes it is 
not obvious from the file extension what is the format or what 
application generated the file. It would be helpful to include that 
information in the comments (just on the first version would do);
    2) Some developers don't share the same applications that some 
others use to generate diagrams or other graphical documents. That is 
fine. But it would be useful to generate an copy of the image in jpg or 
gif formats besides the original format used (just like Matt did with 
the Ecogrid diagram in Adobe Ilustrator and I did with the GARP diagrams 
in MS-Visio). That would allow more users to browse the documents. Also, 
suggestions for more exchangeable formats are welcome.
    That is about it.
    Happy SEEKing for everyone.
