you don't think it's true that we don't have a concrete feature list
for 0.5, or for beta? have you guys been doing some planning of which

remember that i was on vacation for a month. if there are wiki pages
with this information, i'd love to see some urls.

i'll agree with this only if we have concrete requirements for
performance and number of supported users. scaling is an ongoing
process, and new orders of magnitude often require re-architecture. we
need to set some realistic goals for launch and then plan how to get
to higher numbers after.

the limiting factor is development resources. our team is not large,
and (i assume) there are more scooby and cosmo features to develop
beyond those concerned with scaling the server to the service's user
we're absolutely going to have to get started very soon on identifying
the features needed for the production launch and planning how to get

we can possibly start moving forward on other things in parallel. my
main concern is knowing exactly what needs to be done, and figuring
out the dependencies between items, so we know what to do first.
