For the WSCCI initiative I also have been having most architectural
discussions on the WSCCI g.d.o group, or if they happen in IRC or at a
camp or similar posting summaries to the group afterward. (Not always
immediately, but as soon as I am able.) Pretty much the entire history
for the past year+ is documented there. The landing page of the group
is not as useful as I'd like, I agree, which is on my todo list to fix.
The CMI sprint last week was very productive, and we have a writeup with
the results that is in progress. It should be going live in the next
day or two. We wanted to get a good night's sleep before sanity
checking it for release. :-)
I don't believe that simply dumping everything from all five initiatives
to this list would be a constructive way to communicate, unless it is
used only for announcement purposes with links off to g.d.o (since that
and the issue queues are all we've got right now).
