Gmap Package

How do access/download this package?

You probably want to use CVS to download _bit_gmap package. See GetCode.

Where to download?

Maybe I'm being stupid again but where are we to download these add-on packages from? Where do I get Hotwords for example? Do I have also to use CVS - seems a bit extreme....

No, it's not a stupid question. Don't diminish yourself. In fact even the Bitweaver developers are still struggling to find the answer to this question. (:smile:)
Think about it, it's now been 3 months, and nobody has found an answer.
This would be a good item to "pin" to the top of this page - no?

If I had to venture a guess; I'd answer that it can be installed by re-running the BW installer again, and selecting the "packages" tab. Then selecting this package. But then again, if it wasn't available when your version was released, or it is a "3rd party" package, that obviously won't work.
Note to site admin:
Please provide information for users to access these
packages, so users can actually use them.
These packages will surely be a great deal more popular if they can actually be used - no? (:wink:)

Best wishes.

Had I not already been up for 1.5 days now, I probably would have figured that out on my own. (:rolleyes:)

Thanks again, and sorry for the noise!
