"one is silver while the other's gold"

i've been witness lately to a couple of cool "intra-community tool" ways to solicit developer input on our newly launched developer community tool, eBay Community Codebase. a good reminder to create new ways for developer communities to collaborate, while continuing to cultivate and improve your existing community tools.

in one example, we are incorporating the feedback of several developers from a discussion board thread into an upcoming release of the API Reference Docs project on improving the look and feel usability of technical documentation for developers.

Alan Lewis also blogged about how our new AddToWatchList API call could enhance codebase projects, such as our Tivo project.

leveraging established community tools to build momentum for new community tools is a great way to cross-pollinate activity & membership.
