Paving the road to a new update manager, the first block

I've finally sent the annoucement email mentionning the creation of the provisioning incubator. I'm disappointed that I could not sent it earlier to give people more time to see what is going on before eclipsecon, but the last minute hacking for our "cool stuffs in equinox" demo (wednesday morning 10am) lasted longer than I expected :-) Oh well....

Regrets aside, I'm really exited because this is a new start and I really hope that we will get some strong and valuable involvement/contribution from the community and also cross fertilization with EPP and Maya (hope to see some of those guys become committers on the provisioning since it will influence a lot what they are doing). In fact I personnaly believe it is the perfect opportunity since we are starting from scratch and all in the open. Ok it is not perfectly from scratch because I have already committed some code, but this is more a starting point for discussions and directions rather than being the final answer.

So now I'm off to finish my suitcase and other slides, and I hope to see you at the "provisioning, an update on update" bof wednesday night.
