Very nice work, coming along nicely.

Those icons are nice... always on the lookout for new ones [1] ... are they
open source?

We can certainly support it, though it'll have to be via the "extensions"
json-prop, probably of one of the domain-types representations.

More generally, I want to find a way to (a) help you carry on developing
your viewer, while (b) carry on with the json-viewer and getting it up to
1.0.0 of the spec.   Those two are somewhat in conflict - if I commit
changes that break your viewer, I can that'd be annoying for you (well, I'd
get annoyed, at any rate).

So, what I'm just doing is creating a github clone of the apache isis
codebase.  I'll keep this reasonably up-to-date as a read-only copy, and
then you can, if you want, clone it and do "git pull" as-and-when you are
ready.  Does that make sense?  At any rate, I'll do that clone this today
at some point.

Thanks, that might make sense.  Though Mike's server has been very
reliable, so it's not causing us a problems.

I've been playing around with cloudbees, which is also very good... is a
"Jenkins in the sky", along with a deployment architecture based on EC2.
I'm considering setting up a semi-official account there for the
apache-isis team (obviously, I'll start a separate thread and discussion on
