We're currently working against our Buckminster 1.0 release milestone, which will be the first documented & production-quality Buckminster release.  This milestone is scheduled for Q4 2006 completion (most likely late November).
=== Buckminster Milestone 3. Completion Q3 2006 ===
* {{Strikeover|'''-Clean up and restructure-''' [[Buckminster Component Specification|CSPEC]] '''and some related mechanisms'''}}
** {{Strikeover|Remove 'targets' concept (outdated)}}
** {{Strikeover|Remove use of 'buckminster' URL as a query vehicle (only internally used and is better modeled differently)}}
** {{Strikeover|Add component name/version attributes to the data}}
*** {{Strikeover|''In principle this is redundant information, but there are times when it can be necessary and/or useful. However, it must be described on exactly when and how the data is used and what happens when it conflicts with implicit information. There are also implications for [[Buckminster Component Query|CQUERY]] advisor nodes''.}}
