Meeting: 20011218
Body: I worked on improving a Zope tutorial on How to Build a Searchable Job Board. The original tut only allows a user to post jobs, which then stay there forever, You can also search the eternal postings.. I have added an edit and delete feature and also another ZClass to handle resume submissions. When finished, I will not only be updating the tutorial, but will also be putting up a ZopeJobs.com website where Zopistas can advertise jobs or post resumes, (for free of course). The next phase is to get the virtual host mapping working, and authetication up and running to secure it.
