Thanks for bringing this up. There was a discussion during the IRC meeting
about various points, but nothing conclusive emerged. So I'm bringing
this back to the mailing list.

It seems that the biggest problem is documentation. Starting with a wiki
page seems to be a first step in that direction.

An important point that needs to be clarified is the difference between
Ubuntu JeOS used as a guest vm and the infrastructure used to generate
virtual machines or isos.

nijaba volunteered to write a tutorial for JeOS and agreed to use a wiki
page for his work ( ??).

I think for now using ubuntu-server as the mailing list is enough. If
things start to get too noisy here, we can always create an extra mailing
list. Link to this mailing list should be added to the documentation.

I've seen some code activity on the project in the last few days. Links
to bzr branches should be added to the documentation.

There was also some discussion about new features.  soren mentioned that
these should be tracked by filing new bugs on Launchpad:
