    I use symbolic links as well.

    I wish open rails could pull from multiple TRAINSET folders. Seems like it wouldn't be too hard to code. But it has not been done.

    Contact info in a great many readme's is useless as it hasn't stood the passage of time. Readmes and permissions should be written in a way that does not depend on that.
