Hi Florent!

I am sorry, I should have been more specific on  that. I want to hide it 
in the manage area, and have only entities I know they will use. I know 
that if I play around with the visibility it will be hidden for certain 
users, but that is not what I am looking for. I want to hide the actual 
entity in the manage page, and allow only changes in the parent entity. 
In other words, line items may only be deleted from the invoice form.

Certainly! I actually thought about blogging about it, as I think it is 
a nice framework to share. I have already tweeted about it, and intend 
to blog about it. Furthermore, I was also going to ask how I could 
contribute with the translations, as I only found translations for 
English, French and Spanish. I would like to translate a few of the 
cubes I will be using to Portuguese. Do I have to setup an account in 
the site and then configure mercurial to use that account? I have also 
just started playing with mercurial, and it is an easy grasp because of 
its resemblance with git. Now I know that they are based on the same 
version control system.

I have also spotted a few typos in the book, and would also like to 
contribute to improving it.

Thanks for letting me know about this. I am used to hit the reply 
button, that normally shows reply to list. Only now I noticed that 
sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't. Thanks for alerting me with 
regards to this.

This was actually one of the supports I tried. I created an account, 
logged in and joined the public channel, but everybody was chatting in 
French, which led me to think that the support was only in French. I 
will give it a try again. Thanks!
