There should be an initial patch by the end of next week attached to  
the trac ticket for menu management.

At this point, the core team has already made a decision to go in this  
direction, so there's not much discussion other than it being  
discussed in the IRC dev chat yesterday (and the UI chat) and people  
being psyched that Woo is willing to contribute the system to core.  
You won't hear much about it on wp-hackers, because that's more for  
new ideas and questions than decisions that have been made.  
wpdevel.wordpress.com is the active core developers' blog, trac, and  
the #wordpress-dev weekly IRC chat are the main places core decisions  
get made and written down. The real discussion will come when the  
initial patch is posted and everyone can start reviewing the code etc.

That's right. It was this post that brought the Woo menus to the  
attention of the core contributing developers.

Just a reminder: please trim your posts! Easy to forget in Gmail  
especially, but it's important to keep the list traffic to the new  
content. Thanks.
