I'm also interested in hearing about this.
these modules are buildable from the src version but we did nolt include them because they need to be revamped. they will be available in future versions.
So I"ve been playing with the easy download and run for a few days, and today I got curious and downloaded the source for that version (I have not yet gotten source from CVS).
In the downloadable source for version 1.0, the source for the faq, news, polls, and quotes all seems to be there. Is this stuff really not built into the easy install? There is no way to deploy this stuff?
you can go into each component and execute the following command to compile and deploy
