+1 to those from me.
My big concern is that despite recent advances on other fronts we have two target milestones from some months ago 
which have not been achieved: 
a) installation of at least one public facing bibserver on a machine not controlled by cottagelabs/OKF
b) customization at least one bibserver for  specific editorial purposes, to suit the needs of some biblio
I think these should be at the top of current priorities.
It seems customization of a bibserver should best be done by cottagelabs/OKF, with a longterm SaS model, as the hurdle for
a) seems higher than anticipated.  We have to learn what are the obstacles to a) and how to get around them.
Main problem is that any client site needs two roles: sys admin and editoral. Rarely if ever can these be filled by one person. 
Once we have figured out how to get around these obstacles, we need to industrialize the process to increase adoptions, 
with systematic community coordination, and figure out how to constitute BKN to achieve this most effectively.
