Talking Points

- Sync with Github
- SSH key generation (docs) - bug filed.
- LXC User experience
- Targets for new charmers
- Improve the boilerplate charm template (README,
- Reviewing sucks (Use launchpad, merge proposals)

RESULTS:

- We'd like to move to github, tenatively let's do it! (Ask Robbie?)
- Replace libvirt networking to lxc based networking, ensure LXC survives reboots, libvirt groups, caching, update documentation

(?)
