I'll try to respond to everything at once...

I was actually thinking along David's (second post) lines of
stepping back for a bit and discussing the overall GOOD/EVIL
feeling we all have about the current state of the Honeywall.  I'm
sure you have a lot of things to talk about after operating roos
for a while now...

Building applications that people can install on a running OS is
something we have all talked about casually in the past.  I even
took some steps in that direction for roo-1.2 but didn't get there.
 It would be a LOT of work because there are so many parts and
peices in our current setup and it isnt very modular which, once
again, begs for the design review discussion...  Maybe we're making
this [current design] much more complicated than it needs to be?

CentOS is a logical progression from FC6 but I don't really want to
lock anything in until we discuss it a bit more.  OS choice for the
next "installable" Honeywall should likely be an early discussion
topic though.

Infrastructure?  I think just some Wiki space to share ideas and
post whos doing what to start.  What does everyone think?  I really
want to keep the technology we have to manage minimal for now so it
doesnt just end up being wasteland...  As more are willing to chip
in/maintain it, and we identify the need, we know who to call ;P
Thanks again for getting the lists going!
