Go for the small number of contributors right now and then have people
work on the fix all problems at once. This waiting for the cathederal to
be built has shortened peoples tempers the most

Get 2-3 dedicated email monkeys. Hire from local student bodies on
work-study. Hell, hire me back and I will ... [sorry lost my head there
for a second.]

Take sopwiths build system 2 code from some old backup and use that. It
is probably not scalable, etc, but might be a good first pass. [In my
day we used to ship crap.. and we liked it. Now everyone wants to have
high standards.]

I think what a lot of people are feeling that they are missing is a
conversation. Gafton isnt a email/irc guy but got things done and people
doing things when they were in a 400 meter range of his language. Get
someone who can talk to people via email/irc to front for him.

There was a list of things that Bill Nottingham and Elliot asked for
earlier this year that would be helpful for the project. Could someone
post which ones are still needed?
