For this one, the main topic will be Morphic and the IDE. Why? Because it is time to rethink our day-to-day tools and bring them closer to this century (ok, maybe decade :)). It is Ok if you are not a specialist. It is more important to want to participate and learn. The rest will come in time.

Very very nice topic for sprint! UI are long awaiting for refurbishing... ahh..
There was a lot of ideas we discussed with Gary over these years, and
many of them should find the way to the world at some day.
alas..  i'm too busy with other boring stuff to do fun things with UI :(

Doru, there is already a working prototoype. It should work out of the
box , and if not, it will require some minor changes.
We need to take a time and review it and see if it needs some changes.
The changeset i am talking about is buried in mailing list. But it can
be easily found if you follow the links at issue tracker.
