Thanks for getting this started. So far it seems to me we don't have
many dependencies on tasks to be done by other teams. I'll think a bit
more about it and update the storm page so we have it ready for the
meeting on Monday. If others have ideas or think they found a dependency
that should get added, please go ahead.

FWIW: if we think we have a dependency on Mozilla to achieve an item,
then we can add that one, too. Even if there is a difference between
inhouse teams and Mozilla it can't hurt making those dependencies
explicit. And maybe that even helps prioritizing tasks we'd like to see
Mozilla working on.

Isa: I think it is not strictly necessary for you to come to the next
meeting but feel free to drop by in case there are questions or
clarifications needed.
