Well lets get the ball rolling.
Zack and I have talked about setting up a KDE meeting here this summer on the 
east coast of the US.  Maby we need to expand that focus?  I am sure I can 
scare up a few Gnome developers arround this area too...

I know im interested in the DBUS stuff... but only as far as a faster 
transport for DCOP.  IMHO we need to start to bring the stuff 
to a larger focus in both projects.

This is the middle ground as I see it...  The more stuff we define and 
implement there the better it is for all of us.  I think the .desktop 
standard really was a big first step for us.  From a user perspective at 
least.   The NETWM stuff is still comming along in KDE, but that too is a big 
step in makeing things play well together.

I know this is drifting off from the topic here, but I think this is just a 
symptom of the larger problem...

dunno, just my 2c
