Subject Re: [Discussion]Re-org admin console
Date Thu, 05 Nov 2009 16:25:51 GMT
I'd like to have the discussion of "Do we use the Felix Admin Console 
vs. Pluto" first....

Personally, I think we need to focus on getting a Little-G minimal 
equivalent working on trunk first (which doesn't include any Admin 
Console) before we worry with all of the Console based plugins.
