That's a bit of a problem to hide the root page. What should be  
displayed then? How does the user log-in?

I fixed the problem with the adress that could be manually typed in  
just this afternoon (yesterday actually), simply load the latest  
version of Pier-Seaside.

Yes, it is known that this doesn't work.

Yes nasty, I know :-/

Ok, these are obviously all bugs for Pier. I will have a look at them  
tomorrow. Up to now we used this mailing-list and a wiki page to  
report bugs:


Maybe later on we want to go to Squeak-Mantis (somebody already  
created a category for Pier), but right now I am a bit afraid of the  
overhead ...
