Interesting discussion...I agree with Pieter about the utility of a list
view and using the account browser for that for now if that is
relatively cheap to do in the short term. A list of view on Cosmo is on
my list of feedback items (which I suppose I should post sometime). Here
is what I think the current new user experience is for a casual
collaborator viewing the Preview Tracking Collection for the first time
(without other knowledge of the preview schedule): Cool...wait, there
are no events...is this working? Hmm, wonder when preview is...how come
there's no monthly view....
A Chandler user will have benefit of the list view, and will not suffer
this potential confusion. But, hey, it's preview, I don't want to add to
the work pile...there are so many awesome new features and functions
already targeted for preview, it feels more like a 1.0. (That's a
compliment...just in case it didn't transmit.)
