Hi Jonathan,

Looking really nice here!

I've logged two Session
bugs<http://project.webplatform.org/infrastructure/issues/open>to
start the ball rolling on the infrastructure project. Also, we need a
way to "subscribe to" or be "cc'd on" bugs so that we receive e-mail
notifications when there are changes. I've created this
issue<http://project.webplatform.org/prmg/issues/PRMG-4>to cover that
enhancement request.

+Scott
