IANAP (I am not a Paul), but I think that "The primary goal of this release is to enable users to get data into the server" must mean that there is some mechanism for either uploading data, or (based on some questions Paul asked on this list) possibly referring to data that is already on the server.
One of the screen shots shows a web layout.  Perhaps there is a "default" web layout provided?

Wow, that really does look great.  I'm confused on a couple of issues,
though.  First, it doesn't support load procedures, etc.  I think that makes
sense for a pure web-based authoring tool, but at this point, people will
still have to use MapGuide Studio to load their data and then author it with
this tool instead?  I could see that a company may choose to have a couple
of licenses of Studio for this and other advanced functionality purposes and
then use the open source version for other folks needing to create maps from
that data.  I also imagine that others will eventually develop open source
tools for loading data without the need for Studio.

Second, you say that it doesn't support web layouts.  Are the webLayout's in
the Web Studio version different than MapGuide Studio web layouts?

Thanks again for developing this open source tool.  It will be very useful.
