Hm, that surprises me. Anyway, I'll remind him next week when he's back 
from the OpenExpo in Zürich. So, expect an answer soon.

Well, since everyone will quote and bug us on any promise we make we are 
rather careful on that front, right. :)

Well, we still aim for "some release" for the upcoming T3CON08, i.e. a 
downloadable package. We'll see, it depends on some internal discussions 
still, as well as some external output (e.g. namespaces in PHP).

And of course it depends on the timeline and domain of your project, if 
using FLOW3 makes sense or not. We definitely look for a handful of 
pilot projects.

Now that is another one we need to think about. You know, mythical 
man-month and friends... ;)
