Would love to involve more people as well.

Is scratch the right area to make a sample checkin?

Subject: Re: Management Model for Axis and Synapse

Hi,

I am prepared to contribute as a developer in this effort. I was
actually planning to start a project as an extension to Synapse to
cover the management piece.

Please let me know how do I get involved and contribute.

Regards

Vaidya
