Dom, all,

I have the same feeling as Richard on this. It is a bit early to push
for FPWD, although it is the one that has been most worked upon.

Hi Dom,

It would be nice to see DAP moving quickly but I still think we are too
early to publish even FPWD for the Contacts API by Dec 2009. I would
suggest the roadmap be updated to Jan/Feb 2010 for FPWD of Contacts API.

There are a number of items that would benefit from mailing list
discussion before FPWD. I will push these items to the mailing list
today. Perhaps we can pick up this discussion (i.e. FPWD roadmaps) on
our regular conf. call on Wednesday?

Kind Regards,
