You can suggest to change things in the above plan while giving your explanation to do so. Later we may/may not change after we discuss on any issues. We can discuss for more until the end of this month. For the time being we shall discuss the plan in mailing list, and after being solid, I shall announce through Facebook and other channels.

It is also decided that Imtiaz Bhai will open a ticket in APAC trac for fund request.
