Hey guys

First of all I would like to thank you for all your feedback. I don't
know that the idea is so heavily discussed (after the nice post from
stefan) and on active development.

I don't know that Buddycloud is `just` a backend, Simon Tennant. Due to
that the frontend is to protect. At the time I wrote the initial e-mail
I thought on something like buddycloud compared with tomcat. And I don't
like Tomcat (and its vulnerabilities) very much, even java, but not to
bring java to the front(end) is a thing I can get used to it. :). So
I've get bc a go.

Not people but sysadmins. I don't want to mess up my server with java
ruby on rails and python installations.

Still waiting for the validation mail :-)

Folks, we should keep this thread up, that everyone can share updates on
his projects and roadmaps.
