Deployments have better stories about learning than the rest of us can
possibly tell.

Until now, deployments have had little to no contact with us Sugar
developers.  This should probably change in the near future, as they
start looking around for support.

I believe that deployments should become directly involved with Sugar
development instead of being treated like customers that are actively
discouraged from touching the code for support reasons.

This is why I went to Nepal, and why I'm now planning to visit the
Philippines.  Establishing Local Labs is our way to formalize sush
collaboration, but we've just started doing it so there aren't many
success stories we can tell yet.

Yes, I probably have a strong bias towards developers :-)

Well, I guess this is why journalists exist.  I'm handing you some
data, but it's your job to turn it into a story that people would be
interested to read.
