The current code set in trunk is what is running at the NCSU production system and is mostly ready for public use - minus detailed documentation... a task for the wiki.

This code set is modularized so folks can contribute additional provisioning modules, the long-term idea is a person would not need to modify the core, but simply use a module template to develop a provisioning module that would support a particular provisioning engine or interact with different hypervisors, like TPM, cobbler, xCAT2.0, vmware toolkit, xen, some other cloud...etc.

A summary of the 2.1 plans that we would like to see happen and need to be vetted are located here and in jira under 2.1 versions

Some are of the 2.1 tasks are code and database cleaning others are bringing some of the other code functions up 2 date with the.

We've started also a couple of feature items for 2.2, neither of the versions have a timeline.

As far as the wiki - I'm open to layout ideas. But we need to write quite a bit of documentation surrounding installation, setup, development contributions and processes that adhere to ASF and our sanity :).

get people's blood flowing and brains coming out of the Christmas holiday

I'm curious to get a levelset on the code status, 2.1 plans, Wiki ideas

I'm going to be updating the Incubator web sites this week and starting
to figure out my plans for time investment so I'd like to hear what
others are thinking.
