I am working on implementing an automatic course creation and needs some 

1. Is it possible to assign more than one course coordinator?

2. Under the <user> tag, the example gave the following:
    <email>sparty at msu.edu</email>
Who are these users? There is a <roles> tag. Can it be used to assign an 
additional course coordinator by putting <role id='cc'>? (in reference to 
Q1 above?) I assume the <owner> is the course coordinator.

3. In the batchcoursecreate file, at one point it states that the file be 
save in
# /home/httpd/perl/tmp/addcourse/$dom

but just before the create_course routine it has the following:
#                    /home/httpd/perl/tmp/addcourse/$dom/auto/pending if 
$context = auto
#                    /home/httpd/perl/tmp/addcourse/$dom/web/$udom_$uname 
if $context = web
Under what conditions should one use each of the above?
