Yeah, I'm down.

A few initial concerns I have with deploying a production Gobby instance:

 - Lack of ACLs.  It will be a bit of a free-for-all, but that could possibly
   be a very good thing.  There is really no sort of document heirarchy, and
   you can either set a single server-wide password, or none at all.

 - We can setup sobby to save its state after a given interval, but
   people need to be aware that their data is not safe, and they should
   save locally -- often.  Undo does not exist.

I think a single sobby instance will probably be fine for now.  In the long run,
it may be interesting to setup some sort of system that allows users to
create new collaboration sessions with others instantly.  It may be
an idea worth hashing out at some point.

Stickum[0] has been pretty nice so far in my experience.  My only beef with
http://f3dora.org so far has been the fact that sometimes it's quite
slow.  If we want to take this route, the first step would be to get
stickum into Fedora.  Does anyone have any details as to how f3dora.org
is currently deployed ?

There is already an open Fedora Pastebin ticket:
