Yeah, and msuchy (and others) have been working on:
My point is that we shouldn't have 2 groups working on the replacement,
that seems like it's taking time from one group we don't decide to use
the app from. Or is there a possibily to merge the two apps or split the
functionality up so both are complementary?
I didn't realize at the time that there were two solutions being
developed. Timothée was giving lots of status updates and you and
Clement were active in those discussions, so it wasn't very obvious from
my point of view as a fairly new contributor here. I don't know if it's
possible to merge the two. I don't see the point of spitting the
functionality as they mostly do the same thing.
