Hi Randy,

More brainstorming about things you might able to work on...

Do you think it would be worthwhile for you to pull together a blog  
post or some other kind of documentation around all the different  
ways you can get data in and out of Chandler Server? I realize this  
is very vague, but I'm mostly thinking in terms of something that  
might help new developers get started.

I feel we often get questions on the users list about whether Hub is  
able to sync / connect up to some other service. It would be good to  
have something to point people to that summarizes what the server  

We can develop this idea more on the list or by phone if you think it  
would be a good use of your time.

Sheila mentioned that you also had some ideas for projects. Could you  
send them along to the list?
