Just one small note here:

TripleO/Tuskar UI's goal is to deliver working slick installer for 
Icehouse. Which means lot of work and lot of code will need to get in as 
fast as possible. In other words we need to develop rapidly.

I think what we will need to discuss on today's meeting is the way how 
reviews in Horizon might look like after the merger. What things should 
get priority, how to assure cross-company culture, etc.

I believe there won't be big issues, we just need to clarify all that 
stuff and make sure that we can fulfill all UI goals - Horizon's and
