      • See if the database schema can be updated/simplified
      • Find a way to handle EOL'd releases
      • Work on the missing bits
    • FAS3:
      • Finish group management
      • Work on the certificate generation
      • Work on FasClient
      • Port the python-fedora fas client to FAS3
