do you want to enhance the module. Would you like to create a new one? I 
think it would be the best to integrate all in the current treegde2

Melchior is the Module maintainer. It will be the best to talk to him 
about it.

Tere are already works going on concerning integration of group handling 
in the treeGDE

You should ask Christoph about it.

I think there is no need to setup a new wiki page. Use the discussion 
page of http://www.mapbender.org/index.php/TreeGDE2

And put the enhancement list to the trac. So it won't get lost.


I think the best way to discuss it is the IRC meeting on monday. It 
would be nice if you could join and we will discuss the subject there. 
Put the topic on the meeting aganeda and we will see.


Greetings astrid
