[OSM-talk] Potlatch readme gone?

I had spent a little time working on this in the spirit of cooperation ... I

perceive as useful but others may not.

If the project - as a 'work in progress' - is still live, how do I now
access the page?

Potlatch is written in Flash, is is not as intuitive to use as other
software!" don't exactly help - never mind the typos, whether or not
Potlatch is unintuitive has nothing to do with Flash. I'm sure that when
it's had a bit more refinement it'll be a valuable addition to the
