Subject Photogallery project ideas and mailing list

Actually, it isn't an idea.  I was simply asking a question of where the
project will "hang its hat(s)" and where it will be flexible.  What are its
defining points, and where is it open to multiple options?

JCR, while it can use multiple storage backends, still sets the data model,
i.e., it would be a JCR-based content repository, not (for example) a
relational database model.

It seems to me that the surface of the project at least starts with:

  - URI design (REST interface)
  - Content Model
  - Interface API (for non-REST access)

If people want to discuss this further, why don't we move the discussion
from general@ to, where it can simmer until
people are ready to call for a vote?  That should alleviate your concern
about wanting to have in-depth discussion without unduly burdening the
general list.
