Hi Danny,

I think the most important issue for the project right now is:

Earn trust by providing a reliable and easy user experience.

Setting up, running and backing up (and restoring!) a service needs to
be an easy successful, even joyful task. Only then can we earn the trust
of people to see us as alternative to centralized services that perform
excellent in that respect. This polished and streamlined interaction
won't be easy to provide for ALL our applications, which is why I'd
suggest to focus on selected services and care about less important ones
