Yeah, I dunno. I think we should consolidate to one roadmap and just
make softer deadlines for ourselves because *we* are busy.
I wonder if what you are proposing is best done in PERL. I guess at
least it could be proof of concept and functional for our needs...
In terms of releases, I like our approach of getting things together at
the end of the month for release. I think this upcoming release with our
new logo selected we should push to a much larger audience and submit
through the channels. We have yet to do this, and I think we should ramp
up for this release with our info all tightened up. That will help push
I'm finding that we communicate a lot more on this project through the
mailing list rather than chat and that is ok...every project is
