Six Drupal developers met for three days in Feburary 2008 to work on 
and re-design Drupal's core data architecture. We began with an 
overly broad list of topics and goals and spoke in very general terms 
about "Drupal's overall mission" and similarly vague concepts. By the 
end of the design sprint, we devised a tangible vision for Drupal's 
future and an understandable method for getting there.

In more concrete terms, we talked about moving CCK fields in core and 
how local data fields (e.g. votes, comments, whatever) can be 
attached to remote data objects.

Our notes and discussions are available at 
http://groups.drupal.org/data-architecture-design-sprint.  Please 
read at least everything starting from our Day 1 notes before telling 
us how stupid we are.  :-)
