Re: Signinig up, versions, passing UMOs [was: Passing UMOs]

Who said all different versions? What are we talking about at all? A
student takes two different courses of the same subject or what? Who
does such things? If anyone does then one have to fulfill all of the
requirements set by the Author or the Teacher. It is like taking same
classes many times or in different schools. Who cares why one does this
and what consequences are?

WE REQUIRE NOTHING!!! Once and for all. We provide environment. Authors
and Teachers set their rules, correspondingly we provide them with
SETTING TOOLS. If WE want some "UMO passage" fixed, it is for student
information only, and without versions. I will revise specs soon and try
to clarify issues we run into recently.

What is the situation? Who sets policies? The Teacher? - let him resolve
this with his students.

All right, when uu works, get on forums and discipline Authors and
Teachers, I don't have any objections :)
