Hi to all my Org friends.

ColOrg is a project about real-time collaborative editing of Org files.
Here are some news about its progress, after a second push this
weekend.  It is not usable yet, but a few more steps have been taken.  A
few more ropes are needed to tie it up all together, but not much.

Some details follow.

The ColOrg client (on the Emacs side) acquired code for processing all
commands coming from a ColOrg server.  This includes per-collaborator
colorization of recently inserted text, and notification windows for
transient diagnostics.  To be usable, the client still misses the
association between local buffers and remote resource numbers, so
modifications go where they were meant.  The client should also ask the
server to build completions for existing users or resources.

The ColOrg server (on the Python side) requires more work.  The protocol
has been solidified a bit, but needs some love in the area of returned
values.  The problem of proper command rewriting is now better analyzed,
it looks simpler, but still has to be programmed.  I decided for a naive
approach, and by postponed optimization issues, all dark corners have
been lit, none remain so far that I know.

The Wiki also got some more text.  See
