Subject Re: [PROPOSAL] Karaf marketing

Love the new project, especially the new messaging that makes it a lot clearer. 

The projects part is fantastic in terms of message but I think it needs a little improvements
because the bullets look weird. Maybe just remove the bullets ? 

Also it would be great to have a “videos” section if there are any recorded sessions of
Karaf talks. Or at the least slidedecks. What do you think about that ?

I also noticed Karaf Boot is already in there, cool !
