Subject Re: DISCUSS: Ripple as a sub-project of Cordova
Date Fri, 03 Aug 2012 12:24:21 GMT
Hi Ross,

This is very much appreciated. Thank you so much. Gord and I will be
working on the Proposal today and we'll try to have the first draft ready
for next week (it will be all Gord since I'm away on vacation next week).
Will switch to email from now on so as to not spam the group.

Thanks,

Dan.
