Subject Re: OODT Roadmap Telecon

Aye, I'll just second that.

My suggestion for the call was certainly not driven by a desire to 
circumvent Apache procedure, ultimately everyone needs to be in 
agreement and as such votes need to be carried out on the mailing lists. 
But.... we have a bunch of very busy people on the dev@ lists & PMC and 
getting a timely response out of people which allows for an ongoing 
discussion is hard.

I'm hoping with the call we can agree on some stuff at a high level, 
code quality, tests, overall roadmap/plan of action, release schedules, 
builds, demos etc and then take all of that back to the mailing lists in 
finer details on seperate threads that will keep those who are 
interested in those specific bits better informed and give all of us 
better guidance as to where the project is going.

Keep it up Sean, I for one don't care who you annoy! ;)
