Where decisions need to be made is whether ad_form should be updated to use ajax, and RTE to use ajax for auto-saves. In which case, we'll need to consider linking the ajax package into the templates package."
If that's the case, then this is not a .LRN governance issue? Correct? The ad_form and RTE decision needs to follow OpenACS governance?
As for resources, it would be helpful to know precisely what resources are required to enact these decisions. We can then try to pony up resources individually or through mechanisms such as the .LRN Consortium.
I can only speak for myself. I believe incorporation of AJAX should be a priority. I support it and will try to persuade others to do the same.
