Actually, thanks go to Juliet, who snuck the feature in between other tasks.
Individual post/comment deletion would be nice too.
but when I'm done with bad puns, I'll delete my test rotisserie.
This is all small but important stuff. The utility of the search stuff is evident (and was very easy to implement thanks to the jakarta lucene project!). The poll based routing is huge b/c it provides a way to route discussions based on the content of the participants' posts. The expel on skip option is less important but is handy for large but low participation projects in which you don't want to keep spamming folks with alerts if they don't want to participate in a given discussion (as evidenced by skipping a round). Project deletion is nice b/c we can finally start getting rid of some of the testing cruft projects.
Yes, these all seem like helpful additions to the feature set.
I'll go hunting myself, now that I'm thinking about it, but I'd like to know more about how the poll-based routing works.
I was unaware of the Jakarta Lucene project until you mentioned it. Yes, this would add considerably to H2O.
to comment. I'm just getting to know the ins and outs of the Rotisserie and feel I don't have enough experience with it to comment thoughtfully.
What I would really like to see is group list management, selection and ranking. Add that and this would be a really powerful and complete group environment.
That (feature suggestion) belongs in another round from before I was here, perhaps I can still add it.
Once you know the the range of options available in Rotisserie you would enjoy it.It is far better then the traditional "message threads".
