As some of you may know, Chandler [1] is a project to build a
PIM/Messaging/Calendaring application.  After many years of development,
the development team has released Chandler, now at version 1.0.2.

Like Sugar, Chandler is a free software project, written in python and gtk
(on linux), devoted to enabling collaborative effort over the network.
Like Sugar, Chandler has had a few organizational hiccups along the way,
including some controversial publicity [2], and is now trying to reduce
its reliance on a single benefactor.  The software designs created for
Chandler and Sugar to manage data, especially chronologically ordered
objects, have some striking similarities.

Both Chandler and Sugar are currently undergoing design/architecture
reviews.  Chandler has the potential to provide Sugar with a collaborative
calendar, e-mail, addressbook, etc., none of which we currently have.  The
Sugar developers have learned a great deal about collaborative network
systems, and about engaging a larger community of developers.

We have a lot to talk about, which is why THERE WILL BE A MEETING
