Virgo F2F November 2010

The objective of this meeting is to plan and coordinate future work on Virgo.

There should also be time to cover various aspects of how Virgo development is done for the benefit of contributors and committers-to-be and maybe also do a bit of pair programming.

There was a light-hearted journal kept of the events of this week.

Brainstorming mind-maps are available here.
