I found this summary on the old moinmoin wiki. As evan's summary from 28 May, TechSummary28May02, covers most of it, I thought I would just include it (without a date) in case people wanted to reference it for anything.


let's make it an imc-tech summary since we haven't had one for a while. there reason why we didn't have it is that it was done by on person for a long time. so here's your chance to share this task. the logic is simple: everyone fills the bit he is doing.

That way we might have regular summaries since it takes a little time for everyone, instead of huge work for one individual = sustainability.

(note: please keep it in this format e.g. no wiki tags , since this will be sent as an email in few days)
