Sounds like the way to me too.

So i gather that you are saying that we, Cocoon,
need a group of us who are committed to maintain
the operating system and supporting applications.
I am keen to help and learn.

A while ago there was another option discussed:
Mac OS X 10.3 Server
... AFAIK nobody yet took up the offer of running apps there.
There is an old gump there still.

Also we didn't yet investigate Stefano's suggestion of
sharing brutus with Apache Gump.

Interesting co-incidence. We just started talking about
this again yesterday at Forrest. We had shelved plans
for live webapp and forrestbot until infrastructure
was more ready. Looking better soon.

Sounds like part of that discussion should happen over there.

Yeah, it is great. Just like at any other Apache project,
one learns heaps just by being there.

While we are there, we can do our bit to help out
by answering some user questions. You know the drill.

Just like any other Apache project, Infrastructure is a
group of enthusiastic volunteers. We need help.

Only committers and invited guests can join. Anyone can
post so that they can report perceived problems.
