Subject Re: Integrating a thrift javascript client sdk with angularjs
Date Wed, 19 Mar 2014 18:54:27 GMT

Yes. I and sanchit were thinking of writing the proposal. As the individual
projects overlap and finally have to work together as a single unit, I
think it would be appropriate to divide the work and project.

Vijayendra
