Sure. Actually, there are existing issues for each of these.



We should get Alberto and Thaminda to create tigris accounts so we can
assign the issues to them and give them roles in the project.

Yes, I agree. If there is a high amount of email regular email
traffic we could skip or cancel these, but we should definitely try
for something regular as a way of insuring we keep in contact.

Yes, I planned to do that when they get ready to code. No point in
doing it before then as it just creates more to merge. For Alberto, I
anticipate we will want one or more new plugins so that we can keep
all the new dependencies out of the core plugins.

All sounds good to me.
