A quick update:

- Discussed with Jiri Tomasek from TripleO UI squad and he agreed that his
squad would start to use Storyboard, and experiment it.
- I told him I would take care of making sure all UI bugs created in
Launchpad would be moved to Storyboard.
- Talked with Kendall and we agreed that we would move forward and migrate
TripleO UI bugs to Storyboard.
- TripleO UI Squad would report feedback about storyboard to the storyboard
team with the help of other TripleO folks (me at least, I'm willing to

Hopefully this is progress and we can move forward. More updates to come
about migration during the next days...

Thanks everyone involved in these productive discussions.
