  8. MGEM3E: All info in this description applies to every occurrence unless noted.
  9. LG4OWH: What are these codes as “LG4OWH:” on this point? They’re short IDs to date-stamp, uniquely-reference, & portably-track most any point or item.
  10. MFMB3V: Event listing history, in order:
    1. MFRJYT: This listing is a copy of the prior listing & so on; so, for prior change/history entries here, see prior listings.
    2. MGEL2O: starting from listing creation, all authoring by I DestinyArchitect except if noted otherwise.
    3. MFRH28: per Lucy's comment in here q(Regarding "MFOITP: Occurrences,"), I've moved it as she directs there plus renamed as there (shorter & clearer) but kept keyword "Occurrences", as this seems clear (don't know why Lucy didn't see that), clearly refers to the repeats/series ("Happenings" does as well, but not quite as strongly) and is appropriately generic (in contrast, suggested "Meetings" is not always the name sometimes also called, indeed presently called "Meetups" and could be called "Gatherings" or others); per explaining the data, would be verbose & maintenance-cost to title each datum so put "column headings" via "MFRHYB: Format:"; capitalized 1st letter of day of week; also made Lucy's next correction on "wording".
    4. MFRJ87: RE "MFOITP: Occurrences,", completed for the next 2 upcoming events; added all short-URLs; put 1st pic at top; updated heading; other small improvements; pst2012.12.28Fri1535.
    5. MFRMR3: updated heading from "Please comment-on, RSVP, & rate this event!"
    6. MGEKM8: updated MFOJ9I; copied from upcoming OC-Polaymoary, MGDU8A, cutting "Please RSVP-with-Why, comment-on, & rate this event!"; moved MFMA8R under MFOITP; pst2013.01.10Thu0157.
    7. MIYKR7: added MIYKGY & updated; replaced MGDU8A with MHQ8ST copied from last OCPython mtg; pst2013.02.28Thu1746.

    I'll be starting a Github repository for this open source project. The goal is to allow users to create form which can be used when offline and the form submission will get sync'd up to an endpoint once the user is back online.
    I'll post a link to the repository soon.
