Subject RE: [Discuss] Donation of RDP client code
Date Mon, 21 Oct 2013 13:06:33 GMT
Hi Wei ZHOU,

Thank you for your positive feedback.

Adding the console to the systemVM would happen after a donation, because we would want to
do the integration in public.  Therefore, it would be premature to contact Hugo about his
system VM work.
