O Cool.

I started coding up support for states this sprint into our 0.5.0 pull
of the upstart code along the 'while' proposal/spec described in the

But after hearing the conference video I am not sure if it would be
productive for me to continue on this if you are working on this. Is
there an area that you suggest for my team to work so that it doesn't
collide with what you are doing. 
I have 2 engineers(1-dev, 1-test) that can contribute to upstart
development in anyway that might be helpfull

Also, would it be possible to push your development to public branch in
launchpad so that we can work on developing some non-core areas or
writing test cases as the code evolves.

Let us know how we can work together on this.

Actually I said that 1.0/0.10 is targeted for Linux Plumbers this year,
and that the first release of the code intended to *become* that was in

Upstart 0.5.2 is overdue at this point, it's taken longer than I
expected to re-engineer some of the core code - I found obscene numbers
of bugs in the process.

Have you ever, ever felt like this?
Had strange things happen?  Are you going round the twist?
