How's the hacking going? :) I'd be more than happy to help you with making
the changes "in a more sustainable way" and sync up about helping with
documentation--because you're absolutely right...it could use some details

Randall (an Annotator core-committer) and I will actually be in Boston
(well...Cambridge) in a couple weeks for IndieWebCamp!
I'm looking for a spot in our schedule that week to do an Annotator meet-up
/ hack / discussion for anyone interested.
An evening meet-up would work best--either Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday.
Would any of those evening's work for you, Shauna? If so, we'll get
something official setup, find some hack space (or a cafe / pub), and rally
the troops. :)

Thanks again for being here. Let me know about the hackathon / meet-up
possibility on your end of things.
