To the developer of beanscheme.plt,

Your frequent updates of beanscheme.plt are understandable, as it allows you to test out each intermediate version of your software. However, I am sure it is a hassle to create, upload, and redownload your software; furthermore, it creates unnecessary posts on the planet-announce mailing list.

I suggest that you read about "development links" which let you compile and test PLaneT packages on your own computer, uploading only when you need to publish code for other users.

You can find documentation about development links here (this tinyurl.com address links to a specific page on docs.plt-scheme.org):


Thanks, and good luck with your PLT Scheme project!
