Okay Team,

After my brain dump of projects I'm actively involved with I talked with 
Mike about tying up a few loose ends. The biggest baddest one of them 
all is Shuttle. It's time to wrap this puppy up. Obviously the list will 
continue as WordPress develops further and I'm sure all of us will have 
varying degrees of involvement, however we need to get this package out 
of the door.

Speaking to Matt a few weeks ago when he was in London, it seems we've 
got a deadline to include this into WP 2.1. The past has shown us that 
in fact we go through bursts of creativity at a time and then calm down 
a bit. I know we're all committed to this and therefore I propose a 29th 
of January deadline, that is the last Sunday in January.

We don't have much to go, as we're close to the finish line effectively, 
it's just a matter of putting all our ducks in a row and shooting them 
down. I am moving my projects in such a way so that I can devote that 
month to Shuttle. By putting the deadline down it will motivate all of 
us to finish it once and for all. Effectively it will have taken us 
around a year to complete the works, which is much but then again it's 
not like we were working on this full time.

Matt while I understand that you have to consider the older users as 
well, I really don't think the rest of the pack should suffer, so 
effectively what I'm saying things are going to get slightly smaller 
than what you're used to but they will seem much tighter, while at the 
same time we'll be sure to retain their obvious use. Also know that 
you've got a couple of other coding boys that will take a bit of the 
slack off you.

I guess what the boys will eventually do is edit the code directly and 
then you and Ryan can poke around and clean up accordingly.

Right it's time to recharge the batteries over the Christmas break 
shuttle team, think about things and what we'd like to include and then 
jump straight back into it all on our return.
