Well I guess we're done with the discussion of re-arranging the
project forums (combining dev lists,etc) and will not change things
in the short term. Which leaves two more open discussions.
1. What is Snarf's home? I propose that we make it part of Scooby.
We could keep the name or call it something more like "scooby-oob"
depending on what the purpose of the download is. Let's discuss here.
2. Are we going to change the Cosmo 0.3 plan to release a version of
Cosmo *this month* to align with Scooby 0.1?
- We are gathering info on the QA impact
- We are triaging bugs and estimating remaining development work
--> thus we're working on this and will provide updates to this
