      Topics for discussion gathered at ApacheCon EU 2005.

      WARNING: Only reply to the general theme of this
      topics list. Please create separate threads for
      each specific topic.

      Actually we should be using Jira for some of this.
      How about discussing on the mailing list, and
      putting summaries into Jira.

      I have the scraps of paper that Nicola Ken wrote.
      Photographs are in:
      Ross helped me to interpret some of the sqwiggles,
      but there are still some obscure parts (marked
      with #? below). The items are raw, i have not tried
      to explain any or add others.

      List of topics is in no particular order and
      it is not complete. We spent maybe 15 minutes
      brainstorming. We had a first quick pass at
      assigning some priority.

      I don't understand NKBs priority symbols.
      Anyway some items where marked with
       circle ... [C]
       square ... [S]

      Then we went straight on to the top topic:
      "configuration" and spent the rest of the day.
