    I plan to reivew the symposion pull request backlog.

    https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/pinax-symposion/WWcU0OOKphE

    My priority is to get symposion on to a modern version of django, as well as add south. Those will pave the way for future changes.

    Take a look if you are interested.
