Field[Issues] of Interest
> A problem is in our field of action if it's about desktop, that is : client

> managment, as long as it is client-side oriented, that is, as long as it

> setting internet/lan connection is desktop, but setting a ftp server is not.
> setting sound card, graphic card is desktop, setting hardware RAID is not (well

#Prototype phase [no strict deadlines/roadmap]
- Prepare a testcase or a little code snippet to let everybody play with
- With the help of the other insterested in (small groups or everybody)
let's try to get a fully working program.
#Revision phase [strict deadline]
> - add a new task : at least some time to research further (with a milestone),
> and some time to find a solution (with milestone).
> - assign people tio the task, set up deadlines
> - once the planning phase end with approval. the thing should end up to a GLEP
- the d-r site should host a little summary of every project with phases
and timings once we are in the Proto phase.(refer to the openbeos.org
taskchart to have an example).
