Subject Re: short term branch for project/group keys
Date Fri, 19 Jan 2007 03:44:12 GMT
Hey Jesse,

I am gonna fork a new branch tonight and get started on this change. 
Hopefully should be able to get the relevant stuff that we have already 
done merged on the core modules before we start playing with the other 
modules tomorrow :-)

Cheers,

Rahul
