Agree we worker bees sometimes feel in the dark.
You can edit with the WED 2.000b1 beta but not upload to the gateway with it. (The WED 2.0 automatic image and road "slippy Map" feature is very convenient.)
If if validates, open it with the current WED 1.7.2 and upload to gateway.
I think the WED project is User maintained, not LR.
