Hi all,

I am surprised no one responded to this post, and I don't think we are
there yet. Inspiration is only part of the puzzle for me, time is the
major factor ( i can barley make the meetings you are running :), and
I am sure that is true of others.  Growing a bit more couldn't hurt.
Anyway, to your plan...

My name is next to this one and I am not sure what our plan is? what
are we planning to do to improve this? I am happy to work on anything
we decide on/want to see, offer opinions or do mockups...Let's make
'getting fedora' better. I have read this, but I am not sure what we
want to do for the user to make it better:

I think it's the right path, and I think we still need you to bust
trail :)  I will bring up item 1 in the next meeting, but don't know
anything about 2 other than it was to be a web app of sorts, and not
just a set of static pages.
