Hi Jonas, please ask them -
What programming languages does the latest Buddycloud use/plans to use?
Do that plan to work with FreedomBox, will they attend the 15th August chat
on "Social networking with FreedomBox's"?
I know that their channels search engine(directory) is in Java
and would be, as it's Mahout, Solr etc.
and that could be a major, heavy part,
so, please ask them -
do they plan to decouple it and create a separate
search/distributed search for social networks/etc.etc. i hope you know
the demands ;)
PS: XCCC that we would describe on 15th (we are deciding on time as
all have the different timezones)
html"(pretty popular now:) variants,
only minus from the list is that these aren't packaged by Debian ;)
