I think this is a great idea!

This would really help with getting more eyes on StoryBoard. I think a lot
of people haven't touched it much in the last year or two and aren't aware
of all of its capabilities at this point and this would be a great way to
get people up to speed.

This use case (cross project efforts) is also what StoryBoard was built for
after all :)

If anyone has questions about StoryBoard or feedback, please join our
channel #storyboard!

Thanks Doug!
