okay, I think I know what happened here - reading through the archives

Michael was trying to not say 'why don't we fold pulp into cobbler' that
he never actually said that.

I think he wants the ui work from pulp to be implemented in cobbler. On
the cobbler wiki it has:


under one of them it talks about the webui work that's needed. I think
the goal would look something like:
 - put all of the pulp ui plans in here.

So I don't think it would mean sans-ui at all. I think michael is saying
his ui-fu is limited and that if the people who are working on pulp want
to work on the pulpui w/o having to deal with implementing the backend
parts - they should come to cobbler, implement it there - and then the
users magically get the bits w/o having to have to separate backend
implementations that may or may not match up in all ways.

Does that jive?
