Subject: Re: The current state of ESME

Hello Dick,

This deserves a lot of thought, and similar conclusions have crossed
my mind, but here's my first reaction:

-Scala and Lift
We're really in the beginning, Scala and Lift's popularity is just
beginning to grow. I heard there are a lot of Scala-related
presentations which were accepted for JavaOne this year, so people are
starting to pay attention, it would take some time before more
developers consider using it. Lift version 1.0 was released just
recently and interest is starting to grow.

OK. The question is then how do we position ESME as an environment where these developers
who are interested in Scala and/or lift are motivated to participate. My suggestions -  1)
we must increase awareness of ESME in these communitites, 2) we must provide entry points
for those who are new to Scala or lift - we need a description of ESME as a Lift application,
3) we need bite-sized simple tasks that a beginner could perform (As we have said before,
JIRA tasks need to be much more granular)

My 2 cents,
