Subject Re: Purpose and Scope of COHO (was tag 3.0.0rc1 on Monday the 15th)
Date Fri, 12 Jul 2013 16:49:17 GMT
I agree we should clearly scope what coho is for as a group and get
that solid before charging ahead and making it central to automations.

(Nobody here is against automation but I think the issue Joe brings up
is that we like small clearly defined tools and agreed upon ceremonies
for releases.)
