now what?

I got fotobilder [the newest snapshot at danga.com/fb] running happily, but the website doesn't really do much. I've read through the code and it seems that I can upload pictures and such (for those looking, a lot of path handling happens in lib/Apache/FotoBilder.pm) but I need a user account first.

Should I just read the code to find out what sorts of values belong in the user table and then create a user manually, or am I missing something?

- web sessions working
- can create accounts (/create)
- login/logout

If you installed yesterday, drop your "sessions" table and re-run bin/upgrading/update-db.pl -r -p

At this point, I'm ready to start accepting help.

- Need an INSTALL guide in the docs.

- Need a fairly nice stock BML template. Or 2 or 3. (picpix's template is not open source)

- htdocs/create should be prettied up (put form in table, etc)

- htdocs/login should be enhanced: give users option to do long/short login (long cookie expiry vs. on browser close), and bind session to IP address. all this is supported in the backend already... just need some front-end prettiness.

Nothing terribly exciting, but the beginning of a project never is.
