+:SUB:Some notes
+This TODO list is just a place for Yorhel to write down his plans and ideas
+for the upcoming versions of VNDB. Keep in mind that probably not everything
+written down here will actually see the light of day.<br /><br />
+The full source code of the website is available through SVN: svn://,
+anonymous read access is allowed. The code is also available through HTTP using
+the <a href="">Web SVN</a>.<br /><br />
+There is a <a href="">beta version</a> of VNDB available
+for testing. New features will be implemented there and tested before getting
+uploaded to the actual website. Everyone is free to play around and use that
+beta version as a sandbox. Keep in mind, however, that all changes you make
+on the beta are not permanent, and will be reverted whenever I synchronise the
+beta with a more recent version of the database.<br /><br />
+Feel free to comment about the TODO list and to suggest new features on the
+<a href="">forums</a> or on <a href="irc://">

- Recommendation systems have been stalled for now, I prefer to concentrate
- on the encyclopedic part of VNDB at this moment. A proper recommendation
- system may be implemented in the future, though.
