It seems like we are throwing an awful lot of feature proposals on the back-burner due to a need to improve the Federation protocol. In contrast, I have seen little to no discussion on actually improving Federation. I started this discussion hoping to change that.
Perhaps we could start by:
Identifying all the problems with Federation that are currently holding us back
Combine these into an easy-to-read document/wiki article so new developers can get a better a sense of what is going on (and probably be more able to contribute! ;)) and more experienced developers can have a single document to reference while brainstorming. (If there’s not somebody on the “Documentation Editors” team that wants to do this, I will happily volunteer.)
Establish an open team of developers who would like to collaborate and solve these complex problems. (Count me in!)
Please chime in with your thoughts. The above course of action is merely a suggestion, so if you have a better idea on how to approach this, please share!
