Notes from session:

Work items:
- improve performance of loading the scopes (Application scope is a primary example)
- documentation. Python docs/tutorial.
- (document the) server scope submission process

- security is a hot topic with many facetts, just started a mailthread on ubuntu-devel
  - how do we handle/enable a scope that needs to run another executable
