Adds pictures to newsitems in singing and dancing newsletters

Project Description
SplashDancing aka Sensible Defaults
Aims to add some "sensible defaults" to the Singing And Dancing Product

The features include:
- pictures sent with news items
- A control panel for "zapping" HTML ids and classes that should not show up in newsletters

More detail
This product registers an adapter for the Singing and Dancing newsletter product that detects
if a news item has a picture and sends the picture along with the news item.
It also provides a "through the web" (TTW), control panel where a user can list ids and classes
that should not be sent in a newsletter.

An Out of the box S&D newsletter does not allow newsitems to "travel" with their pictures and instead has a very basic representation of newsitems.

It is based on ZopeSkel's 'paster create -t archetype' which is a bit overkill, but it provided all the necessary "hooks"
to get started.

- Code repository:
- Questions and comments can be sent to the singing and dancing mailing list (

Warning, There be Dragons
This system works, however it will, hopefully, be refactored in the near future (by early 2010). It has only been tested with Singing and Dancing 8.12 on OS X Leopard. There is no test coverage for this code, so consider it broken.
