Personally I think it's OK. It won't hurt to try to do better if we
have time obviously...

Eben posted about this on the internal mailing list. I think we should
turn his suggestions into tickets.

Trying to get some user feedback would also be useful, even just by
the developers community.

No idea in regards to the manual. What we certainly can/should do is
to finish up the redesign. Eben had a list of regressions, but he is
lazy and didn't post tickets for them yet... Designers.... :P

I think this refers to collaboration group. With collaboration still
so unstable (and lack of clarity about future architecture) I don't
personally think it's wise to push down on this.

Management I think.
