Good to hear that :)

The link you provided are not completely up-to-date. The etherpad is no
longer used (that was the notes while discussing the API internally) and
Mozilla is currently working on updating the wiki page. I will send an
email to the group when the wiki page will be up-to-date and ready to be
used for the F2F meeting.
