Sprints

Whiteboard

Daniel: Broken plugins should be considered a blocker unless a consensus otherwise is reached. Remember there is a community of users out there, many of whom don't use Ubuntu, but do use plugins that we don't.

Daniel: Performance regressions should be considered a blocker. However if any are found then we should aim to work around them by providing config options to switch back to older rendering methods. But hopefully that won't be necessary.
