    Your message is awaiting moderation. Thank you for participating in the discussion.

    Ben, I know you guys were working on some refactorings to make it easier to write addons for roo. Would you be able to tell what's the status of that?

    Also you have mentioned a GWT addon being developed, can you detail a bit on that? Who's working on that ?

    Are there any efforts on a Google app engine plugin ?
