>> Yes it's true Interchange is coming out of the closet for good.  With all the excitement of Interchange 6 in the air we as a group have tried to reflect on what can be done better.  More or less trying to not continue with bad habits and learning from our past mistakes.  A very good point was brought up by both Jon Jensen and Racke which was we need to stop hiding in the closet.  We want to make sure that the entire community is involved with Interchange 6.   To better do this we are going to be holding our development meetings in IRC on the freenode channel #interchange.  This way everyone can see what is going on and even join the band of brothers.  The 1st public development meeting will take place Monday October 28th at 9:30AM EST.  The meeting

We more or less came up with the necessity of the table editor for Interchange 6 at the conference.

Yeah, this roadmap is really outdated. I will update it before the meeting on Monday.

Yes, that is our goal. For example, the current cart code (Nitesi::Cart etc) lives in a generic
module, which is tied into the application through wrappers for DBI (optional) and Dancer.

It's a bit different from a marketing perspective, here you want to say:

Interchange 6 is build on the great Dancer framework ...

(in order not to confuse these manager types).
